Speckled mousebird (Colius striatus)

Speckled mousebird (Colius striatus)

Nanyuki, Kenya

The home we were staying in had a very nice garden that was often visited by up to a dozen of these little mousebirds. Early morning was the best time to catch them and eventually I managed to pick one up on the long lens! (More Kenyan birds to come.)

1/320s f/6.3 at 500.0mm iso400 full exif
