“The Rainbow Bee-eater (Merops ornatus) is a near passerine bird in the bee-eater family Meropidae. It is the only species of Meropidae found in Australia.” (Wikipedia)
For a long time, I wanted to see those brilliantly colored birds. I had seen glimpses of them on various trips in Australia but had never been able to observe them at a short distance.
There were many around the Broome Bird Observatory (http://broomebirdobservatory.com/).
