Slim green bee-eater with an orange throat and crown, a black tip to the tail, and elongated black tail streamers. Found very locally in moist woodland and forest edge, usually near rivers and streams. Typically in pairs or small groups. The call is an up-and-down series of high-pitched whistles. Somewhat similar to Madagascar Bee-eater, but smaller and slimmer, and without broad white stripes on the face.
