Long-tailed ground roller (Uratelornis chimaera)-1

The long-tailed ground roller (Uratelornis chimaera) is only found in Madagascar and is highly specialised. We found this pair in the Spiny forest to the north of Tulear on the west coast of the island. The birds range is extremely small, roughly 30-60 km inland, and 200 km along the coast. They are listed as VU Vulnerable in the CITES index.
