Birdorable 199: Rainbow Bee-eater

Cute Birdorable Rainbow Bee-eater

The Birdorable Bonanza is almost over. For the last 16 days we've been adding a new Birdorable bird every day and we've been having the biggest Birdorable sale ever with 17 products at 20% to 50% off. Today's new bird is this Rainbow Bee-eater from Australia. These colorful birds measure 7 to 8 inches long, including the two elongated central tail feathers. They eat insects and have a special fondness for bees. This is our totally cute Birdorable Rainbow Bee-eater!
