Introducing the Northern Carmine Bee-eater

Merops nubicus, sometimes known as M. n. nubicus, is a bee-eating bird native to Africa and a member of the Meropidae family. This bird, which is distinguished by its vibrantly coloured plumage, is mostly carmine in colour, with a green-blue head, throat, and characteristic black mask. Their bodies are typically slim, and they have crimson eyes and a sharp black beak. They can perch on tall surfaces because to their sharp claws.

Although occasionally their eyes may be a different colour, both males and females of this species have remarkably similar appearances.

In certain species, the males’ tail-streamers are a tiny bit longer than those of the females.

A large portion of central and northern Africa, including the Central African Republic, Benin, and Cameroon, is home to the Northern Carmine Bee-eater.

Naturally, the Northern carmine bee-eater consumes a lot of bees, but it also consumes other flying insects including ants, grasshoppers, and locusts. The majority of the time, birds perched on branches will keep an eye out for passing insects and then grab them on the flight.

These birds build horizontal nesting tunnels that can be up to eight feet long in their enormous colonies, which are typically found on cliffs or close to riverbanks. Per clutch, the female can lay up to five eggs. The responsibility for incubation and chick care will be shared by both parents. The chicks are nearly completely grown after 21–32 days, and the parents will continue to feed them until they are old enough to go hunting on their own.

This bird is not thought to be in immediate danger of population decrease because of its extensive range.
