Southern Carmine Bee-eaters. Carmine Bee-eaters are social birds breeding in colonies on river banks and foraging out over open country. They are attracted to bush fires and hawk around the edges; their Mandinka name (in The Gambia) means 'cousin to the fire.' This species occurs across sub-equatorial Africa. -- site is not in English, I may need to use Google Translate --
