We have two kinds of bee-eaters (osoidae): 1) Pernus apivorus and 2) Pernus apivorus orientalis.

The former is found mainly in the European part (except for the Crimea and the Caucasus), and the second, larger in size, is distributed in Primorsky Krai, Sakhalin, southern Transbaikalia, southern Baikal, Irkutsk region and in some cases in southern Siberia.

The European bee-eater is 60 cm long, the male is dark brown on top and light-colored underneath. The female is dark brown from above, light brown on the bottom, with large transverse spots. Head ash gray. The color of the birds varies. The nests are in May. Lay a few eggs with dark brown spots.

Bee-eater feeds on bees, bumblebees, wasps and other hymenopterans. For feeding, they are placed in the field along the main summer line of bees and massacre the latter.

Measures to combat bee-eaters – the destruction of nests and the destruction of adult birds by shooting with a gun.
