Rainbow Bee-Eater

While in Kununurra we have gotten to watch a new bird flit around the trees. 
The Rainbow Bee-Eater is multi-colored which is a little tough to tell in the picture but he is blue, green, yellow, and orange.  They are so graceful in the air and eat insects including bees.  Their voice is described as "soft musical trilling" in our bird book.  We have added him to our bird list on the right side of the blog.  We are up to 92 birds and hoping to hit 100 by the time we leave Australia.
