Oriental Dollarbird (Eurystomus orientalis) / 08.02.2015

The Oriental Dollarbird (Eurystomus orientalis) is a stunning bird from the roller family. On our way back to our homestay after a full day in the Thattekad Bird Sanctuary, our guide gave us the opportunity to see this beautiful colorful bird. He knew his habitat so he brought us there and quickly found it. Amazing.

near Thattekad Bird Sanctuary, India.
