In my opinion, the Lilac Breasted Roller is the most beautiful bird I have ever seen! I could not stop taking pictures of them in Lewa, Kenya. Many times they would be perched on the Acacias like in this painting or on old wood that had been removed from a tree by the elephants. The roller bird family (also known as Coraciidae) is a species of Old World birds named for their unique ability to perform aerial acrobatics in flight. This consists of side-to-side rolling motions and fast, shallow dives from high elevations. This impressive display of ability from African roller birds happens when in courtship or during territorial fights. If their courtship displays are successful, they will breed while in flight.
