European Bee-Eater - Little Rainbow Bird

Breeding primarily in Europe, northern Africa, and western Asia, the European bee-eater is a colorful, thin bird. It has yellow and brown upper parts, with a black beak, blue or green belly and green wings. European bee-eaters commonly grow to between 10.6 and 11.4 inches (27 and 29 centimeters), although this length includes their elongated tail feathers, meaning its actual body isn't as long.
