Speckled mousebird feeding

This beautiful photo of a speckled mousebird was taken in the garden of a good friend of mine in Port Elizabeth in May 2020.

What a long tail!

As can be seen from the photo, speckled mousebirds love fruit.

Here the mouse bird is enjoying a guava.

Professor Google tells me that mouse birds can be found all the way down Africa from around Ethiopia to South Africa. Read more here.
