BLUE-BEARDED BEE-EATERS (Nyctyornis athertoni) - large bee-eaters found in South Asia, where they are generally found in openings in patches of dense forest. As is suggested by their names, they mostly feed on bees. They favor thin to fairly thick forest with clearings. They are usually seen alone or in small groups of up to three birds.
