The Rainbow Bee-eater is a stunningly beautiful bird. Every spring we are always listening for that first call indicating they have returned for the summer months after spending the winter up north.

Over recent days we have heard several of these delightful birds while working in my wife’s native plant nursery. Sightings of them have been elusive – until late yesterday. Near sunset we heard them calling just outside. I raced out with camera in hand and managed three photos. I was hoping for a photo of one sitting on a dead limb of nearby tree – a typical pose of this species. I had to make do with one sitting on the power line leading to the house.
