Description

We are lucky so see them almost every day in our garden. They usually come in a group of about 10.
The Inside Story: Speckled Mousebirds often look ruffled, scraggly and unkempt. That's because the outer parts of the feathers do not have barbules to keep the vane toghether.

Description from Wikipedia

The mousebirds are a small group of (possibly near passerine) birds, which have no known close affinities to other groups, though might be close to trogons and owls. The mousebirds are therefore given order status as Coliiformes. This group is confined to sub-Saharan Africa, and is the only bird order confined entirely to that continent. They had a wider range in prehistoric times and apparently evolved in Europe.

No range data available.
