    Bee-eater Lake Mburo National Park in June

    As can be seen in my post above #15, I was unsure of the status of the blue-ish bird in my photos in post #7. I noticed that our member Tib78 has recently started posting again after an absence.

    There does seem to be a certain amount of variabiltity in this species. As you say, your bird has a lot more rufous than any pictures I've been able to find online (though I haven't looked much beyond a Google image search). We saw several birds - at least three and possibly as many as five...
