Wagtail




The wagtails have returned!
They usually arrive in April or May
after wintering in the Middle East
or North East Africa.
Busy little birds that I see
everywhere I go.

I'm linking to Wild Bird Wednesday.

  4. The wagtails are an adorable sign of spring for you. (And very different from any bird I've ever seen.)

  27. Great job, Gunilla. Seems odd to see a wagtail perched atop a conifer. I always imagine them scurrying along the ground searching for insects.
