Cayley (1968) says that it was also called 'Star-wing', which is lovely.
I'm wondering if any of you can help me please.
When did the Broad-billed Roller (presumably its original name?) become the Dollarbird? and does anyone know who/how it was renamed?
I assume the change to metric currency influenced the name change and would be interested in hearing any background on this
