Hogging the bird bath

Here's something you don't see every day: a mild-mannered wagtail.

Make it quick. I won't look.

Wait. Where did the other one come from?

Hurry up. I haven't got all day.

Good grief! What's in the water?

Oh, good. The silvereyes have gone. Now I can have...

That Wagtail has to be unwell; I haven't ever seen one so docile.
Even the Grey Fantails, generally less aggressive than the Wagtails would be a bit more assertive than that around here.
Neat series of pics

I know! It was so odd, that I thought it worth documenting.

Perhaps you need a bigger bird bath? A satellite dish on its back is very popular at my place.

There's actually a second bird bath not two feet away from this one! I might have to start issuing tickets like they do at the deli.
