About The Long-tailed Ground-Roller
This species spends most of its time on the ground, although it may occasionally sing from a tree branch (3). It forages on the ground for invertebrates, and often lifts and lowers its tail as it goes (2). They are monogamous birds (2) and pairs nest in three-foot deep holes that they excavate themselves, usually in a slope or embankment (3) (4). Pairs are territorial and during the breeding season they will defend the area around their nest hole (2).
