Artist's Description

In my garden in Gauteng, South Africa.
The mousebirds (Colius striatus) are a small group of (possibly near passerine) birds which have no known close affinities to other groups, though they and the parrots and cockatoos (Psittaciformes) may be closer to each other than to other birds. The mousebirds are therefore given order status as Coliformes. 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. (Wikipedia)
Muisvoëls is vegetariërs en is uit-en-uit Afrikavoëls. Daar is 6 spesies in totaal. Daar is die bruinerige Gevlekte Muisvoël met sy wit en swart bek (Speckled Mousebird), die Rooiwangmuisvoël met sy kaal wange en kenmerkende ‘tshivovo’ roep (Red-faced Mousebird) en die grys Witkruismuisvoël met sy bloedrooi pote asook die wit kruis wat jy sien wanneer hy wegvlieg (White-backed Mousebird).
Muisvoëls kry hul naam natuurlik van die donserige voorkoms van hul vere, hul lang sterte en muisagtige geskarrel tussen die takke. En hulle is soms so stil soos muise. Vrugteboere sê hulle is ook so lastig soos muise, want hulle kan groot skade in ‘n boord aanrig.
