I'm not much of an ornithologist, but I managed to look at a nature movie this week.
The film talked about bee-eaters and why they aren't stung.
They explained that the bee-eater beats the bee on a rock in such a way that the sting brakes off.
I was able to photograph some bee-eaters this week and I looked at their meal just before swallowing. In this photo, you can see a wasp with the sting removed.

Baby coots! Very cool.
