Pied wagtail

Pied wagtail, a photo by ricmcarthur on Flickr.
We saw this pied (black and white) wagtail in a mountain village in Spain.
The river was flowing strongly from the snow melt up in the Pyrenees.
It was still able to collect lots on insects from the shoreline.
It came back to this rock in the middle of the river on a regular basis making the photo possible.

Motacilla alba
