Pied Wagtail

Click Me
Location: Barley Cove, Ireland Date: 02/06/2015
Scientific Name: Motacilla alba Pic By: Mark
Family: Wagtail Size: 18cm
ISO: 800 Gender: M
Equipment: Canon EOS 7D Mark II 420/1 Wingspan: 28cm
Description: A common and familiar bird, the pied wagtail is often seen in towns and cities, dashing across lawns, roads and car parks while wagging its long tail up and down. Pied wagtails eat insects but will feed on seeds and even rubbish in winter. They flock together at warm roost sites like reedbeds and sewage works or trees and bushes in city centres. In summer they defend breeding territories and will nest in ivy, under roofs, in walls, between stones; in all kinds of places!
