African Pied Wagtail

African Pied Wagtail  Motacilla aguimp
Mega Area, Ethiopia
18 January 2014

    This species is easily distinguished from the similar White Wagtail Motacilla alba by its unique head pattern. Its song and calls are also quite distinct. This individual was located near a raging torrent and was busily engaged picking insects, and other aquatic invertebrates perhaps, from the rocks and the surface of the water.

  1. So see you again another wagtails David. They look yet again different from the white Wagtails in the Netherlands :-)
