Newly Hatched Willie Wagtail Chicks

These are in NSW in Australia. They love to swoop on you like the magpies do and make a clicking noise snapping their beak together to scare you away or injure you. Steer clear! Hopefully, the babies will grow up fast and go away so we can go outside once more.

Edit: Dec 2014 – They have left the nest empty and no longer swoop but make lovely calls – much like Australian Magpies!
