The European bee-eater (Merops apiaster) is a bird in the bee-eater family, Meropidae. It breeds in southern Europe and in parts of north Africa and western Asia. It is strongly migratory, wintering in tropical Africa.
As the name suggests: they love eating insects! Particularly bees, wasps and hornets.
It is listed as ‘of least concern’ by the IUCN red list.
Although species might be listed like this, I still consider these birds endangered. Because our whole ecosystem is threatened by climate change. Sad, but true. Let’s take good care of our planet and our birds!
