Digital Calendar photo description

Colourful Call

Very late afternoon in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, this Lilacbreasted Roller took upits roosting position for the night and appeared to be calling others to join it on its comfortable perch.

Lilacbreasted Roller – Coracias candata

Distinguished from similar Racket-tailed Roller by its obvious lilac (not blue) breast, by being generally paler and by having pointed, elongated outer tail feathers.Adults lose elongated tail feathers during winter moult. Perches conspicuously.Call is harsh squawks and screams when displaying.
