The Willie Wagtail is a sweet, small black and white bird found throughout mainland Australia, except for Tasmania. It has a black throat and white eyebrows and whiskers making it easy to distinguish from other small black and white birds. Not surprisingly its name is quite literal… they constantly wag their tail from side to side while standing. The Willie Wagtail is found mostly in open habitats and is often found near water-courses and wetlands, whether they be urban or rural. I often see them down by the river swinging their cute little tales from side-to-side as if they are listening to hip hop music ♥
