RAINBOW BEE-EATER: Merops oranatus

  • Often heard and seen above the tropical rainforest canopy in Australia.

  • A gorgeous bird of green, blue, rufous, and cream with black eye streaks and two small tail shafts.

  • They head down south to breed in the summer, and are thus more common in the tropical north in the dry season.

  • They can be seen on the banks of the upper Daintree river, and in various open areas often perched on dead trees or wires.
