Excellent clarity and detail on the mice Collin. You've got that big lens sorted now by the looks of things.
I still don't know what to make of that darn mousebird. Looks like Evolution took it into its own corner.


Yep its a strange bird with the legs far forward. Its not related to any other birds and the are only 6 species , they are sort of living fossil. They are quite noisy as they move in a group. They are sociable with lots of preening amongst themselves. Flight is a lot fast trajectory as that tail does not help for flight. The Tail feathers are very hard as they use them for climbing and support.

Here are a few I took a few years ago.
