Rocky the (one-legged!) Rock Pipit

Rocky the (one-legged!) Rock PipitRock Pipits like to stand on one leg! This individual certainly did, and was amazingly adept at moving one leg up under its feathers and imperceptibly shifting its weight onto the other leg. At first I thought it only had one leg! It did this so quickly!
