NOTES: (Breeding Status: Breeding. Gen. Climate: Arid, cyclic wet-dry. Cover Density: Open, medium.) Two feeding young and male singing from his song perch as female at nest. Male also fed. They nested here in the Mukutan at the beginning of the gorge dropoff and there is a[n] earth bank under the cliff.
There is a section where the bee-eater is "breaking" an insect by bashing it on a branch.
