All in the family… One more beautiful than the other

Lets keep it in the family!!!.. On more beautiful than the other, but actually both beautiful…

We have the Lilac-Breasted Roller and the Purple Roller that grace our continent and we have the European Roller that visits our shores. All are so colourful and unusually marked.
