When setting up camp at McBrides' in the Kafue National Park, Zambia we noticed a fenced off area - being curious we enquired as to its purpose. The answer - Bohm's bee-eaters. This extraordinary little bird tunnels its burrow straight into the ground - not into a bank like most bee-eaters. Having seen many different bee-eaters in southern Africa this was a new one for us and its nesting habits made it even more intriguing. We spent the next couple of days watching as the pair flew in and out - occasionally perching on a branch above their "hole-in-the-ground" McBrides' were very proud of their residents and were doing everything possible to protect them. Gorgeous birds!!!
