Cape Wagtail (Motacilla capensis)
I have captured this 'Cape Wagtail' at Marieval Bird Sanctuary. It's a common bird here in South Africa, but it's not an easy task to find this bird in good position as well as in good background. This picture was taken from a Hide early in the morning, same position from where I captured my previous posted Southern Masked Weaver.
Cape Wagtail is a rather dull plumage and short Tailed Wagtail

Hello Srikumar,
Amazing good details and natural colors. This specie looks very close to Yellow Wagtail from Europe...
Thanks for sharing this lovely little bird...

Hi Sri,
Fantastic pic, I love the way how the wagtail looks into the frame, great composition. I also like the smooth, OOF background and the tack sharp branch as well. Stunning image, bravo!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
