    Nice pose, shows length of tail well David, this is the one mousebird I didn't see in east Africa. Agree a lot of African birds have long tails, Whydah and Long-tailed Widowbird are amazing.

    That is some tail. When I first saw the image I wondered why the bird was framed to the left - now I know why!
    Cheers, John Daniels.

    Nice shot David. We saw the red-faced Mousebird but no photo opportunities like this

    Nice low angle David. I'm not used to seeing them down on the ground
