Examples of "fronted_bee_eater"
One occurrence of the white-fronted bee-eater has been recorded, as an escape from captivity.
The white-fronted bee-eater ("Merops bullockoides") is a species of bee-eater widely distributed in sub-equatorial Africa.
The wetlands are known for wildlife including the near-endemic black lechwe, tsessebe, reedbuck, oribi, sitatunga, elephant, African buffalo, crocodile, hippopotamus, and many kinds of birds such as pelican, spoonbill, flamingo, shoebill, wattled crane, saddle-billed stork, spur-winged goose, sacred ibis, glossy ibis, black-crowned night heron, white-fronted bee-eater, swamp flycatcher, rosy-throated longclaw, Fuelleborn's longclaw, Denham’s bustard and numerous waterfowl and many other birds.
The bee-eaters are generally similar in appearance, although they are normally divided into three genera. "Nyctyornis" comprises two large species with long throat feathers, the blue-bearded bee-eater and the red-bearded bee-eater, both of which have rounded wings, a ridged culmen, feathered nostrils and a relatively sluggish lifestyle. The purple-bearded bee-eater is the sole member of "Meropogon", which is intermediate between "Nyctyornis" and the typical bee-eaters, having rounded wings and a "beard", but a smooth culmen and no nostril feathers. All the remaining species are normally retained in the single genus "Merops". There are close relationships within this genus, for example the red-throated bee-eater and the white-fronted bee-eater form a superspecies, but formerly suggested genera, such as "Aerops", "Melittophagus", "Bombylonax" and "Dicrocercus", have not been generally accepted for several decades since a 1969 paper united them in the current arrangement.
Working from drawings, Latham appears to have had difficulty in distinguishing the different species and some he described more than once under different names. In his "Supplementum Indicis Ornithologici" he described the Australian noisy miner four times: as the chattering bee-eater ("Merops garrulus"), the black-headed grakle ("Gracula melanocephala"), the hooded bee-eater ("Merops cucullatus"), and the white-fronted bee-eater ("Merops albifrons"). This has caused some confusion in the ornithological literature as to the correct scientific name. Latham's 1801 Latin supplement is the authority for around seventy species of birds, almost all of which occur only in Australasia. They include the Pacific gull, the barking owl, the noisy miner, the Australian magpie and the magpie-lark.
English ornithologist John Latham described the noisy miner four times in his 1801 work "Supplementum Indicis Ornithologici, sive Systematis Ornithologiae", seemingly not knowing it was the same bird in each case: the chattering bee-eater ("Merops garrulus"), black-headed grakle ("Gracula melanocephala"), hooded bee-eater ("Merops cucullatus"), and white-fronted bee-eater ("Merops albifrons"). Early notes recorded its tendency to scare off prey as hunters were about to shoot. It was as the chattering bee-eater that it was painted between 1792 and 1797 by Thomas Watling, one of a group known collectively as the Port Jackson Painter. John Gould treated the name "Merops garrulus" as the original description, and renamed it "Myzantha garrula" in his 1865 work "Handbook to the Birds of Australia", giving it the common name of garrulous honeyeater, and noting the alternate name of chattering honeyeater. He noted the colonists of Tasmania called it a miner, and aboriginal people of New South Wales called it "cobaygin". "Que que gang" was a local aboriginal name from the Blue Mountains.
