The Lilac Breasted Roller

Jun 27, 1994

The Lilac Breasted Roller (Coracias caudatus) is one of my favorite birds with its beautiful bright colors of blue, green, brown and, of course lilac, all over its breast. This critter sits atop trees and bushes checking the ground for insects, scorpions and small lizards upon which it feeds. But, you will be quite surprised when it spreads it’s wings. It looks totally different as its blue wings predominate. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s posting and see for yourself.
