European Roller

European Roller
When I think of "roller" it brings to mind -roller skates, high roller or possibly holy roller, but not a bird.

We saw this European roller in Spain. It was too far away for a good photo but its colours are so impressive I posted the photograph anyway.

The field guide describes it as a Jack daw sized bird, which would be similar to a crow in size.
Heavily built, green tinged blue bird with a brown back. Large head and a strong black bill.

It colours are beautiful, particularly in the bright sun.

coracias garrulus
