Bee-Eaters (such an odd name for such a beautiful bird.) They swoop the bees on the wing. From Europe and Africa.

The Golden Pheasant or "Chinese Pheasant", (Chrysolophus pictus) is a gamebird of the order Galliformes (gallinaceous birds) and the family Phasianidae. It is native to forests in mountainous areas of western China, but feral populations have been established in the United Kingdom and elsewhere.

I'm so going to find the elusive Quetzal bird while I'm in Guatemala. I love this little guy!

African Pygmy Kingfisher (Ceyx pictus) by Rainbirder at Abuko Forest Reserve, Gambia: A tiny Kingfisher which prefers small shaded forest pools where it feeds mainly on insects. These wee birds positively golw in the dark gloomy understory of the forest. #Birds #African_Pygmy_Kingfisher #Rainbirder

Gorgeous Hyacinth Macaws. These are amazing birds! But they are large in both size and cost! Unfortunately, they are currently endangered. :-(
