There are 27 species of bee-eaters worldwide (in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia). They have one of the most complex social structures of birds.

Most species are monogamous and many live in large colonies in family groups with up to four generations. They appear to recognize family members and nesting neighbors from voice recognition.

The birds in this picture are White-fronted Bee-eaters.
