Willy Wagtails

  I snapped this photo of some willy wagtail chicks perched on their nest under my friend’s carport.  The mother bird chose one of the busiest spots on their property to hatch her chicks.  They were sitting there so still they almost looked fake, and there...

Babies and Pink Gumboots
