Lilac-breasted Roller Coracias caudata

Okavango Delta, Botswana

Thursday 3rd May 2007

  2 species of Roller were seen on this particular trip, Purple Roller and also Botswana’s national bird the Lilac Breasted Roller. A pretty widespread species and on some highways every 15th telegraph pole seemed to have one perched on it!

  Photos taken with a Canon EOS 30D and a Canon 75-300mm Lens.
