Both Red-faced and Speckled Mousebirds were occasional sightings on the cliff path. Unfortunately we usually only saw them flying along, with their long tails trailing behind them.
This one stopped to perch but unfortunately not in a terribly exposed location.
The Red-faced Mousebird (Urocolius indicus) is a species of mousebird or coly. It is a common in southern Africa from Zaire, Zambia and Tanzania south to the Cape. Its habitat is savanna with thickets, fynbos scrub, other open woodland, gardens and orchards.
