Abstract

We describe an undocumented foraging strategy of the Willie Wagtail (Rhipidura leucophrys) interacting with grazing animals. This observation includes intentionally displacing a horse in order to depredate insects. Further observations of the feeding behavior and foraging tactics of wagtails are necessary to ascertain the frequency of this event in this species that has adjusted to living in cities and rural settings.
