Bharatpur Diary 2010 – Indian Roller

Indian Roller

The Indian Roller (Coracias benghalensis), sometimes also called the Blue Jay is a member of the roller family of birds. They are widespread in India and are best known for the aerobatic displays of the male during the breeding season. They are very commonly seen perched along roadside trees and wires and are commonly seen in open grassland and scrub forest habitats. These birds are not migratory, but undertake some seasonal movements. Several states in India have chosen it as their symbol.
