Say “Hi” to Willy Wagtail
This fellow and a few of his friends were caught in a summer shower but seemed to be very happy and posed for me!
I would love him to show his tail fan.
This lovely little bird (about 20 cm) makes me feel very happy.
They flit around and sing a musical song.
Though they also have a scolding voice and an alarm call if they need them.
Their tail fans beautifully and when they land or stand they fan their tail and sway or wag it as if they think their tail is lovely too.
Everything about them is energetic and fun.
Willie Wagtails are found throughout Australia’s mainland and parts of Tasmania.
