Green Bee Eater

I had taken these snaps at Ranthambore, though I have spotted quite a few of them in Gurgaon and Noida. They are easily distinguished by their tail,  the central feathers of the tail is elongated, which gives it a very interesting pointed appearance towards the end of the tail. And their beak also looks long and thin.

Chestnut color on its head

Look at the long tail

  1. Yes, I have seen these birds in Gurgaon too, though not in Delhi surprisingly! Green bee eaters are also very commonly seen (and in huge numbers) in Pune! I shot quite a few over there.
