White Fronted Bee-Eater

The white-fronted bee-eater (Rooikeelbyvreter, Afrikaans name) is the only bee-eater in the region with a red throat. It is a common local resident.

Pairs mate for life and they excavate a new breeding tunnel every year. The tunnels are approximately a metre long excavated into vertical alluvial banks.
