Large Pied Wagtail

Like you rightly guessed, this family of birds gets its name 'Wagtail' because of the constant motion of its tail. The bird has a prominent white eyebrow and are generally found in pairs. The female is the one with duller brown colour. The bird has a pleasant singing note and is pretty comfortable with humans. This one came as close as two feet from me.
Photographed this bird near Sultan Battery in Mangalore.
Camera Sony H-7 ; 1.7x telephoto ; f/8
