227/S75.) Speckled Mousebird (Colius striatus) / Braunflügel-Mausvogel

 

Boulder´s Beach, 15/05/2016 - ebc

 

Similar to the White-Backed Mousebird, but even in this photo the differences are visible. The upper mandible is black, the lower white, and the feet are not red like those of a White-Backed.
