I took this picture of a Purple Roller close to Afsaal picnic spot. Both these pictures are of the same bird, but from different angles.

Hi friends
Here I am back after a long time of too much work.

We saw the bird below at S140, at January 7th 2011. I identified it as Purple Roller (Coracias naevius). Do you agree?

Cheers
Charbel
