These rollers were very common in Botswana.

As I go through my archives, I find all sorts of interesting things. The Woodland Kingfisher that has this readily identifiable bi-colored beak is also supposed to have black legs and a blue head and shoulders. It looks like this is a hybrid with a Mangrove Kingfisher that lives 1200 km away on the east coast of Africa. Talk about a long distance relationship! Then again, it might be a hybrid with a Grey Headed Kingfisher, but that is less exciting.

These vultures were silohetted against the late evening sky. Their neck fringes are distinctive.
