European Roller (10)
|European Roller (Coracias garrulus)|
I had captured this picture of European Roller at Kruger National Park, South Africa. I go for such background while I face dull sky which is not attractive at all.
The European Roller is the only member of the roller family of birds to breed in Europe. Its overall range extends into the Middle East, Central Asia and Morocco.
The European roller is found in a wide variety of habitats, avoiding only treeless plains. It winters primarily in dry wooded savanna and bushy plains, where it typically nests in tree holes.
