Specie: Speckled mousebird

The Speckled Mousebird (Colius striatus) is the largest species of mousebird, as well as one of the most common. This bird is about 35 cm (14 inches) long, with the tail comprising approximately half the length, and weighs about 57 grams. They make a warbling tsu-tsu call while in flight, and are known for their tisk-tisk alarm call while in flight.

It is distributed from Cameroon east to Eritrea and Ethiopia, south through eastern Africa to southern South Africa. Most habitats are suitable for this species, except the rainforests and more arid areas. This mousebird prefers open bushveld habitats. It is widespread in savanna and open woodlands, as well as areas with tangled thickets. It is a common “backyard bird”, often seen in urban areas that contain gardens and orchards.
