A Day at the Office

I was “on the job” today at our commercial farm and encountered quite a number of species. The highlight was my first European Bee-Eaters of the season. They¬†were flying overhead in a small flock¬†and gorged themselves on a termite emergence from an onset of afternoon showers.
