This small bee-eater is a bit of a nightmare to photograph as it usually keeps high up in the canopy and so getting a decent image can be a challenge.
This bee-eater is a bit of an enigma. It is found in a small relict population in Kakamega forest in Western Kenya but otherwise its eastern limit is the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is likely that the Congo forest once extended east from the Congo basin through Rwanda/Burundi and Uganda to Kenya. When the equatorial rain forest belt shrunk a small relict population of this bird was left stranded in Western Kenya.
