    The Lilac-breasted Roller (Coracias caudatus) is a member of the roller family of birds. It is widely distributed in sub-Saharan Africa and the southern Arabian Peninsula, preferring open woodland and savanna; it is largely absent from treeless places. Usually found alone or in pairs, it perches conspicuously at the tops of trees, poles or other high vantage points from where it can spot insects, lizards, scorpions, snails, small birds and rodents moving about at ground level.[2] Nesting takes place in a natural hole in a tree where a clutch of 2–4 eggs is laid, and incubated by both parents, who are extremely aggressive in defence of their nest, taking on raptors and other birds. During the breeding season the male will rise to great heights, descending in swoops and dives, while uttering harsh, discordant cries. The sexes are alike in coloration. Juveniles do not have the long tail feathers that adults do. This species is the national bird of Botswana and Kenya.

lovely colors, I admire so much the nature, like here when it delicately gives a golden "hair" to this bird, topping more brilliant shades of colors.

"Named for the agile aerial displays, the dazzling rollers are robust, pigeon-sized insectivores that perch openly in savannah country, occasionally dropping to the ground to swoop on an item of prey. The liac-breasted roller, pictured here, is the acknowledged star of the family." East African Wildlife;
