This beauty’s the lilac breasted roller,
It’s markings are vibrant and solar,
Lilac and blue,
Every colour and hue,
It likes to swoop down from a position that’s polar! *

* this bird loves wooded landscapes and it likes to sit high in a conspicuous “polar” position, so it can sweep down on its prey. It is the national bird of both Botswana and Kenya and lives in sub-Saharan Africa and the Arabian Peninsula.
