Little Bee-Eater (Merops pusillus), Bahir Dar, Ethiopia, June 2009

Flycatcher, Bahir Dar, Ethiopia, June 2009

A flycatcher sits on a branch by lake Tana, patiently waiting for me to take its picture.

This was identified for me as a Little Green Bee-Eater (Merops orientalis), but I have had a chance to look at Birds of the Horn of Africa, and the distribution for the Little Green Bee Eater is wrong, and the Green one has green, not yellow, at the throat. I think it is a Little Bee-Eater, Merops pusillus.
