ハクセキレイ / White wagtail
When I went to a park in my neighborhood, I noticed that there were an inordinate number of white wagtails. They are not rare birds to begin with, but I felt there was something different. Not only were there many of them, but they were also very active.
These are the top three wild birds (in my opinion) that I see so often that I don’t know when to photograph them. The other two are brown-eared bulbul and… I don’t know.
I think it’s because they are usually on the ground, walking on concrete or other man-made objects, so it’s hard to take good pictures of them. But they are cute.
There are many different subspecies of white wagtails. This is an ordinary male white wagtail.
This was the reason why they were so active. A young bird was waiting for its parents in a tree.
A young bird begging for an insect.
He seemed to be feeding the young birds as he walked them from place to place.
I wondered if he was also practicing flying with the young birds.
A sparrow. This one seems to be a young bird. The base of the bill is yellow.
