lilac-breasted roller

Africa’s lilac-breasted rollers are particularly colorful birds with their springlike colors, but they are also very aggressive. They perch at high vantage points to spot prey, which include small amphibians, lizards and insects. They then swoop in and batter their captives before swallowing them whole.
