The BLUE BEARDED BEE-EATER

The BLUE BEARDED BEE-EATER

The blue-bearded bee-eater (Nyctyornis athertoni) is a species of Bee-Eater found in much of the Indian Subcontinent and parts of South East Asia.

It is found mainly in the Malayan region but extends west into peninsular India as well . The blue feathers of its throat are elongated and often fluffed giving it its name. They have a loud call but are not as gregarious or active as the smaller bee-eaters, and their square ended tail lacks the typical “wires” made up of the shafts of the longer central tail feathers in many species.

It was a real nice opportunity to click these two shots of Blue throated Bee Eater inside Jim Corbett(Jairna entry).

We all should strive to preserve our mother NATURE to keep these beautiful WINGED CREATURES to thrive.
