My hunch is that the Rainbow Bee-eaters are on the cusp of hatching their eggs. There are lots of comings and going around the tunnels but no food being delivered just yet. I’ve just noticed that the male, featured in the shots below, has a slightly deformed bill. I suspect it has no effect on its ability to snare insects in flight!
