Pied wagtail down on the road in my street this morning. Have seen a couple on the roofs, but first time on the road. Hopefully will be the start of the winter feeding season for me.

Got home from afternoon doggy walk and two pied wagtails in the carpark outside my front door. Called to them and one started running over. Went in and got some live mealworms for them. Hopefully they will stay for the winter now.

The birdies were not there when I got back from doggy walk. But came in later. They were up on the porch roof getting some shelter from the rain. Came down when they seen me. Got a short video. Is a little wobbly.

Back, I think it was September we had Pied Wagtails on the green of the bowling club I play with. On one occasion, counting I got to 42 before they took-off and flew away. Amazing sight.

I hope you fed them after they stood around patiently while you got your video. :)
