The Dollarbird, Eurystomus orientalis also known as the Dollar Roller is a bird of the roller family, so named because of the distinctive blue dollar shaped spots on its wings.
It has a length of up to 30cm, and can be found in east Asia, from northern Australia to the Japan archipelago. The bird is an insectivore with a love of beetles and often catches prey whilst flying. The young birds have a darker beak which becomes more orange as it becomes mature.
It is most commonly seen as a single bird with a distinctive upright silhouette on a bare branch high in a tree, from which it hawks for insects, returning to the same perch after a few seconds.
