Named because its tail never stops wagging this is a bird commonly seen in towns and parks. In areas where Pied Wagtails are common, you can often hear them calling as they fly over their favourite hunting grounds to check if there is already a Pied Wagtail feeding there. It has a diet that consists almost entirely of insects. They build their nest in holes in walls, buildings, or old nests of larger birds. Breeding starts in May where they have 1-2 clutches a year.
