The Indian Roller is a territorial bird. It will be just there to where it is comfortable, finding some easy to launch and capture perches and even to retreat from danger. What is very interesting is that, it is huge but can also be shy, so when one is after this bird for a photograph, if you are using a car or on foot, you will find yourself really far away from where you first found it. A good telephoto lens is always a welcome company. I love the scaled blue colours it displays on its wings and feathers and it is just simply an attractive common bird.
