Forsärla (Gray Wagtail)
Yesterday we ringed in Handöl and caught a rare visitor around these parts: this beautiful male Gray Wagtail. I've become friendly with many Pied Wagtails, and Yellow Wagtails are common here, too—but to see a fashionable Gray made everyone's day.
I love this photo. It was a *very* fluttery bird, and in the hand, of course, it wasn't just its tail that was pumping up and down.
