Bee eaters

BRS MP and Green India Challenge founder leader J Santosh Kumar this Sunday, January 28, posted on X four pics of a group of beautiful bee-eaters sitting on a branch of tree. This post is part of his #Weeklydoseofphotography campaign to bring awareness among nature lovers to the multi-colored birds and wildlife. The GIC is fast racing to its seventh year in a few months.

Santosh’s commitment to environment and wildlife is well backed by his GIC fans as well as general public. His posts on X got 2,749 views, 170 likes and 35 reposts by evening 5 pm. If GIC`is inspiring people to plant trees on every of their memorable occasions, these Sunday photography pictures two messages – one to preserve environment and another to appreciate the nature.


Bee-eaters, social birds

Santosh takes care to see that the birds caught on his camera every week are not repeated. He tries to click different ones in different backdrops, Sunday. This is a tough task, given his otherwise commitments as a politician and lawmaker. Like us, humans, these tiny bee-eaters too live in groups and breed and raise their family with mutual support. Bird watchers point out their collective movement, almost throughout the day.

As their name indicates, bee-eaters are fed on small insects and bee like flies. These attractively colored birds catch them mostly in air and take them to their nests, if small birds need food. Bee-eaters build nests in sand banks, earthen mounds etc, instead of trees like other birds. Though not scientifically categorized as vulnerable, these bee-eaters like most other birds are endangered by every increasing human activity.

There is a need to shield them from all kinds of poaching. Of course, leaving enough water bodies is a requisite for all birds, including bee-eaters!
