Blue-Bellied Roller

This is Coracias cyanogaster, the blue-bellied roller, named after its plumage (obviously) and after its spectacular, rolling/tumbling courtship displays. They eat large insects like grasshoppers, and can be beneficial to farmers in that way.

This bird is native to Africa, and was photographed at the Central Florida Zoo.
