Watch the Birdy

 

Unlike their cousins, the speckled mousebird, who visit on a daily basis, the Red-Faced Mousebird is a rare visitor. Indeed, so infrequent that, in the 18yrs I have lived here this is only the third time I have seen it and managed to photograph.

A small group of six landed among the neighbours’ fruiting privet and for a few minutes set up a loud ruckus while they indulged in an afternoon snack.

Made my day!

Ark.
