European Bee-Eater

Bee-eaters are birds from the coraciiformes order that live in Asia (Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia). As their name suggests, these birds eat bees and wasps. There are 25 types of bee-eaters in total, and they all have different colors. Here, you can see the chestnut-headed bee-eater. Its head shimmers in chestnut brown, its neck in golden yellow, and its belly and wings in green with a few turquoise feathers.
