Love birds

These long-tail birds are very common in our neighborhood. As usual, I have no idea what they're called. But they're fun to look at!

At the end of our first life in Nairobi, I was walking along the same road I do everyday. I saw one of these birds and thought, "Paul, why do you want to leave this paradise?"

They look like Mouse Birds, but it's a little hard to tell.

I think it's the speckled mousebird - according to the Collins Field Guide. Could be wrong. Would need to see them a bit closer to confirm.
