Speckled Mousebird (Colius striatus)

Please look at my website bobswildlife.co.uk, look under 'Guest Photos', by Peter M Beesley, it's wonderful. I have a new links page on my website, if you want me to add your blog or website, please contact me.  We are still working on the site, with many new galleries to come over the next few weeks. Any feedback would be much appreciated. 


The Speckled Mousebird was photographed at Slimbridge WWT.

  1. Hey Bob! What a peculiar bird. I've never even heard of that bird. Thank you for showing me a new bird;-))

  2. I too had never heard of this bird before, Bob. You had me looking it up. Delightful images of a rather strange-looking bird. At first glance I thought that it was a raptor, but I see that it is a fruit-eater.

    Best wishes - - - Richard
