Ad campaign: Bird on a wire

Challenge #62 in the The Art Director series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
The client is looking for an image of a bird on wire for some sort of play on words about their service. The bird, or birds, must be clearly perched on a wire (such as telephone line or electrical line) and not a branch or other object. The bird and the wire must be dominant enough to see clearly, so no distant shots with distracting backgrounds.

Notes: The Green Bee-eater, Merops orientalis, (sometimes Little Green Bee-eater) is a near passerine bird in the bee-eater family. It is resident but prone to seasonal movements and is found widely distributed across sub-Saharan Africa from Senegal and The Gambia to Ethiopia, the Nile valley, western Arabia and Asia through India to Vietnam.[2] They are mainly insect eaters and they are found in grassland, thin scrub and forest often quite far from water.
