The Willy Wagtail

The Willy Wagtail

The Willy Wagtail

By Fay Slater

In her story Noongar Elder Fay Slater talks about how the Willy Wagtail is also believed by the Noongar to be another death bird but unlike the other death bird the Willy Wagtail will often show itself and do a dance for the viewer and at the end of the dance the wily wagtail would fall over to let the person know that either themselves or someone in their family would pass away soon
