MadagascanWagtail

January 18, 2018 – Madagascan Wagtail or Madagascar Wagtail (Motacilla flaviventris)

These wagtails are found in open areas near water on the island of Madagascar. Usually seen alone or in pairs foraging on the ground, they eat invertebrates, including spiders, caterpillars, and moths. Pairs build bulky cup-shaped nests, from twigs, stems, and moss lined with soft plant materials. Both parents incubate the eggs and feed the chicks.
