Viewing Families in the Order "Coliiformes" (Speckled Mousebird)

Coliiformes are a tiny order of birds; as if playing on this fact, the mouse bird is included among the 6 species listed as Coliiformes. Like swifts, they can point all four toes forward, a characteristic called syndactylous. They are mousy-colored with 10 tail feathers and an aftershaft, which gives them a fluffy appearance.
