I read about this behaviour of bee eater’s dust bathing or sand bathing. But this is the first time I saw this cute act. Bee Eaters does the sand bathing in group wherein they just do rigorous shake and take lot of sand to their body and then do the preening. This is to get rid of external parasites. This helps them to keep their feathers and skin in great shape.
