Rollier à ventre bleu

Coracias cyanogaster 
 Coraciiformes - Coraciidae

Comme les pies-grièches, ce rollier africain se perche sur un poste d'observation stratégique et dégagé pour localiser ses proies, de gros insectes et petits rongeurs. L'espèce, dont le vol est particulièrement acrobatique surtout pendant la période nuptiale, niche dans le creux des vieux arbres morts à bonne hauteur.

Blue-bellied Roller
Like shrikes this African roller perches on a clear and strategic observation post to localise its prey, usually large insects and small rodents. The species has a very skilled and acrobatic flight and nests high in old hollow trees.

Wow, what an incredible indigo blue! Plus the contrast with the aqua color on the tail feathers. I wish it would come hunt rodents in my garden.
