The beak of which bird is adapted to catch bees, wasps and hornets in their flight?

European roller
European honey buzzard
European bee-eater
black-tailed godwit
As the name suggests, bee-eaters predominantly eat insects, especially bees, wasps, and hornets. They catch insects in flight, in sorties from an open perch. Before eating a bee, the European bee-eater removes the sting by repeatedly hitting the insect on a hard surface.
