Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Uncommon to locally fairly common summer migrant to warmer regions, from winter grounds in Africa. Favors open and semiopen country with scattered trees and wooded patches; feeds on larger insects, such as grasshoppers. Mostly seen singly or in small groups, perched on bare snags, wires, and other prominent perches, also on the ground. Spectacular and distinctive: overall brilliant blue, with rusty back, stout crowlike bill; juvenile plumage duller overall.
