Description:

I only noticed when looking at the photos but this bird appears to have only one leg. Didn't stop it rearing a brood right above my office.

Funny you should ask, I didn't see it wag. Since they run rather than hop when on the ground, that could be a problem too. It had no problem bringing food to the young which seem to have flown already. This is the second year they have used that site and I haven't seen the young either time.
