Blue Bellied Roller

Blue-bellied rollers are a colorful species native to central Africa. Both males and females look identical, and have brilliant royal blue abdomen, dark and light blue feathers on their wings, and a tan head. They are powerful flyers and have a loud, croaking call. During the breeding season, pairs of blue-bellied rollers engage in elaborate courtship flights, which include nosedives and the rolling action for which they were named.
