      Lilac-breasted Roller

      Judging by the lack of Blue on base of the chest it's actually a Rufous-crowned roller, Coracias naevius.

      C. naevius was my first thought, too.

      Sorry FBBird, you know waaay more about birds than me, but shouldn't it have a lilac breast / be more colourfull?
    • FBBird
      Having looked it up, I'll go with Rufous-crowned. Sometimes I really show my ignorance.

      While I had no idea what species this was, I do really like this photo. It is very well composed and if I took it it would be one that I would use for my desktop background, or even print out and frame.

      :cool:

      Thanks for the comments Zooboy, it's actually a crop of a larger pic as the bird was quite far away.
    There are no comments to display.
