Pied Wagtail

The Pied Wagtail, a year-round resident at Wellington, is often found in large numbers feeding on Turf where it takes flies and small insects from the grass. With a similar flight pattern to its cousin the Grey Wagtail, there can sometimes be some confusion over each species until they land and rest and the clear differences can be seen.
