[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Coracias cyanogaster catching his lunch. Native to Africa, from Senegal to northeast Zaire. They're commonly found in warm open country, perched on trees, posts, or overhead wires, looking for insects to eat.

The Roller has a lapwing-like display, twisting and turning in flight, which lends to its name. It nests in a hole in a tree cavity. It is common throughout its range, and is considered of Least Concern on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
