White Wagtail

Motacilla alba


This enchanting little bird was hopping all about on the rocks of the Great Pyramid of Kufu in Egypt. It feeds on insects and probably nests in crevices of the Pyramids. It comes closer to people than most little birds and wags its tail feathers up and down when perched.
