Did you know?

Paragliding Porterville - Speckled Mousebird.

The Speckled Mousebird is common in South Africa where it is a regular visitor to Porterville gardens and habitats feeding mainly on fruit.

These are very social birds, feeding together, engaging in mutual preening and accompanying each other when they go to ground to dust bathe.

A breeding couple are helped by 2-6 helpers, usually young birds from previous clutches although half are not even related!!

Mousebirds like to hang in trees with a monkey-like grip directing their bellies upwards to make the most of chilly winter sunshine.
