Bee-eater with blue throat and tail

Blue-tailed or Blue-throated Bee-eater (Merops veridis)

 Sometimes called 'Berek-Berek Tadah Hujan' by the Malays, a pair of this Blue-tailed bee-eater came by to say hello this morning.  They perched on the branches of a dead tree from which they made regular return flights after scooping some bees from the surrounding neighbourhood.  Sometime ago they did come in a big flock chasing after a big swarm of bees.
