White Wagtail,Scientific name: Motacilla alba, called in Israel "Nachlieli".
It is a tiny bird, and usually comes as a "messenger" to winter here in Israel.
20-28gr weight, 9cm tail out of max. 20cm length, white belly, grey to black wings.
It's twitt is pleasent and with fine musical tone and vocal spread.
Managed to have caught on a tree, a bit unusual for this bird - always running on surface.

Hi Ike,

Pleasant overall picture you have here,

Without being derogatory or facetious Ike, i would strongly recommend you invest in a longer lens,

Your centre of interest here is the White Wagtail, and he is too small in the format,

In your photo info it says you used 64.6mm focal length use of lens, well lets say you where using a longer lens ie 300mm lens you could possibly fill the frame, and the White Wagtail will be more of a acceptable size,
Ike this is a friendly Critique,

Regards and have a wonderful weekend,


Hello Ike,
I like the overall image with the bird very well positioned in the frame. Excellent definition. Very natural surroundings. Just a pleasure to view.
