I truly believe that the continental Bird of Africa should be the Lilac Breasted Roller. It epitomizes all the majesty of color found throughout this rich and abundant continent. Its acrobatic flight, raucous call and curious attitude have endeared it to both locals and visitors of sub-Saharan Africa. The colors of this extraordinary bird are beautifully complimentary and so rich that its pelage seems to have been colored by Matisse.
