Backyard Birds

Wagtails

The wagtails occur naturally in the Old World (Europe, Africa, Asia).

These small perching birds have long tails which they wag frequently. Wagtails are slender and often colorful.

They mostly feed on insects found on the ground.

These ground nesters lay up to six speckled eggs at a time.
