Coracias benghalensis
In our campus, we locate a lone Indian Roller juvenile. It chooses to stay around our quarter for few days. May be availability of various insects during that monsoon days is reason behind its choice. During that short stay its became used to our presence. It became very friendly with us and even allowed us to come real close to itself. Most of the time it was forages on ground, catch prey and perched to nearby tree. 

Many time it perched on rooftop of our Mahindra Thar. This Indian Roller was little less afraid of humans as its juvenile. We are really fond of this curious and candid expressions wear by Indian Roller….
