I never get tired of seeing Abyssinian Rollers… They’re just such beautiful creatures with big personalities.


I met this little fellow when I was south in Magaria, visiting friends of a weekend. Too young to have grown his distinguished tail streamers yet, he was stunningly beautiful nevertheless.


For the first time, I caught an Abyssinian Roller as he stretched his left wing-


…then turned to adjust the plumage on the other side.


Here’s a recap of the left wing stretching. Not a bad wing for such a little bird!


…and there, all ready for his/her next rendez-vous! Looks like a date, doesn’t it? Fancier plumage will have to be looked for!
