Abyssinian Roller

Coracias abyssinicus Hermann, 1783

The Abyssinian Roller (Coracias abyssinicus) is a member of the roller family of birds which breeds across tropical Africa in a belt south of the Sahara, known as the Sahel. It is resident in the southern part of its range, but northern breeding populations are short-distance migrants, moving further south after the wet season. Source: Wikipedia
