Bee Eater Brooch Pin
The European Bee Eaters are easy to spot with their sharp and richly colored plumage, contrasting against the striking black beak and mask like eye bands. Swooping in from an elevated perch, these agile birds have excellent eyesight, catching their preferred dietary staple, the bees, in flight and then thrashing them on a branch to remove the sting.
