This is one of the most spectacular birds, by the color of their plumage, which can be found in Menorca.
The bee-eaters are gregarious, and always travel in groups that can become numerous. They make a relatively long tunnel in which the 5 to 8, spherical white eggs are laid around the beginning of June on sandy slopes. Cala Tirant and Sa Mesquida are well known nesting sites.
Just as the name suggests, bee-eaters predominantly eat insects like bees, vesps, dragonflies but lizzards and froggs too.
