african pied wag tail

Three species of wagtail are poly- or paraphyletic in the present taxonomical arrangement and either subspecies need to be reassigned and/or species split up. The Blue-headed Wagtail (AKA Yellow Wagtail and many other names), especially, has always been a taxonomical nightmare with over a dozen currently accepted subspecies and many more invalid ones. The two remaining "monochrome" species, Mekong and African Pied Wagtail may be closely related, or a most striking example of convergent evolution.
