The day of the tiny birds

I promised and I haven't forgotten. It is the the day of small birds today. Last week a friend told me that his favorite birds were the Willie Wagtails. Their closest relative in Tasmania is the Grey Fantail. The first image just gives a bit of context and scale. They are tiny indeed! And they hide in the shadows and shrubs, which makes photographing them very hard.
