LILAC BREASTED ROLLER - by request
The Lilac-breasted Roller 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.
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 defense 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.
For anonymous who asked how may colors the Lilac Breasted Roller has - I’d have to say pretty much the entire spectrum is represented — yellows/creams, orange/rusts, red/pinks, greens/aquas, cyans/blues, violets/purples in the beautiful birds plumage.
In July my brother found a lost lovebird in his school, a mischievous boy who loved to land on people’s heads, which we named Coconut.
Even hats can’t stop him.
He also likes screaming into people’s ears, shredding my collages and stealing pencils - generally being a nuisance (ok, an incredibly adorable one).
Unfortunately we couldn’t find his owner so we adopted him.
A month later a stray lovebird showed up, perching daintily outside Coconut’s cage listening to his terrible singing. Amazingly, she fell in love with his awful songs and decided to stay.
Cece is very shy but after Coconut’s annoyance lessons she’s starting to follow him and attack our heads. She wants to be a fabulous hairstylist, as practice bites my hair and occasionally poops in it. :c
They are both too cute.
