Bee-eaters are hard to photograph because they are always flitting out to catch insects.  This is the white-fronted bee-eater.
What do you suppose all the holes in this embankment are?
It's a colony of carmine bee-eaters.
These beautiful birds are not tiny like most bee-eaters, but are ten inches/38cm. long.
They live in colonies and hunt during the day in the same large groups from the tree tops.
It's a spectacular sight!
Here are three more birds seen around the river.
The endangered Wattled Crane
Hammerkop--called that because his head is shaped like a hammer.
