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.
