Their breeding season begins in March and ends in June. Female birds build their solitary nests. Actually, they dig a tunnel in sandy banks and lay 5 eggs. Unlike many other bird species, both male and female of the green bee-eater join the incubation and parenting. They incubate their eggs for 18-22 days and feed the hatchlings for 22-31 days until fully fledged.
