Extremadura spring 2011 (3)

Although their name, bees is a low percentage of their diet.
So its totally unfair to kill them in order of saving the apiaries.
Because of the myth which is emphasized from the name of the bird, some governments still give license to beekeepers, to kill Bee-eaters.
Maybe in terms of conservation this species should change name as already happened eg. with the Gypaetus barbatus english name.

Merops apiaster (Bee eater – Μελισσοφάγος)
