Madagascar Bee-eater

Madagascar Bee-eater: Kazinga Channel. Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda, August 2022 — At the time I saw this bird I miss-identified as a White-throated Bee-eater, and we did, indeed, see White-throated not too long after, along the same bank of the channel. Then I tried to make it a White-fronted Bee-eater, but the tail is too long and spiky…so Madagascar. The White-fronted would have been very unusual in Uganda…the Madagascar is expected anywhere in East Africa as a migrant from the south. There are a few nesting records.
