OVER the re­cent weeks the stun­ningly beau­ti­ful rain­bow bee-eaters have re­turned to their south­ern nest­ing ar­eas from the far north of our huge state.

Th­ese birds dig a tun­nel in the sandy ar­eas of the South­West, in which they lay four or five eggs. The male can be dif­fer­en­ti­ated by the two tail stream­ers that are longer than those of the fe­male.

This im­age was taken along Scenic Drive in Wan­neroo, where they have pro­tected nest­ing ar­eas, cour­tesy of the City of Wan­neroo. GARY TATE, Green­wood
