In my opinion, this bird ranks right up there with "Lilac Breasted Roller" for incredibly sexy bird! Did you know it is the National Bird of Uganda??? These pictures were taken in the Ngorongoro Caldera, Tanzania - May 30th.

Now, you'll probably see pictures of them in many places, having seen them once, to start :)
