The three species of mousebird found in South Africa. The Speckled  and Red-faced Mousebirds are widespread throughout South Africa, whereas the White-backed Mousebird is restricted to the Karoo and the drier parts of the Fynbos Biome in the south western part of South Africa. As frugivores, mousebirds are important dispersers of the seeds of a large number of plants that produce fruit.
