Cape wagtail.

These little birds fascinate me, always busy and purposeful, they have very little fear of humans and can become quite tame. A friend of mine once had a pair nest in a fern he had on a stand in his lounge. While they were hatching their eggs, then feeding the nestling's, until they fledged he had to leave a window open. 




Cape Wag-tail. Took this photo late this afternoon.

Soul-fulls of pluck, those little shorebirds. We have a very similar looking one here called a Snowy Plover.
Beauty of a photo, Phillip!
