Yellow wagtail (Motacilla flava // Codobatura galbena)

The western yellow wagtail (Motacilla flava // Codobatura galbena) is a small passerine in the wagtail family Motacillidae, which also includes the pipits and longclaws.

It is a slender 15–16 cm long bird, with the characteristic long, constantly wagging tail of its genus. It is the shortest tailed of the European wagtails. The breeding adult male is basically olive above and yellow below. In other plumages, the yellow may be diluted by white. The heads of breeding males come in a variety of colours and patterns depending on subspecies.

The call is a characteristic high-pitched jeet.

This insectivorous bird inhabits open country near water, such as wet meadows. It nests in tussocks, laying 4-8 speckled eggs.
