Willie Wagtail Photos

Rhipidura leucophrys 

Seemingly a rather beloved species in Australia, and one that certainly has a lot of character! And unlike some birds, it is EXTREMELY well named! Very cool to watch them forage, stopping and pumping and wagging their tail. The 2nd photo below is kind of "mid-wag".
