Subject: [obol] Maybe it _is_ a wagtail
I'm not convinced it's a Pipit although I would not rule it out at this
The tail on Eastern Yellow Wagtail does not have to appear 'quite long'.

and the followup here

The white-edged black secondaries appear very dark for a pipit .
and the back streaking very weak but on fresh, smooth, apparently-alternate

See here for McCauley Library June-July pipit photos

(not sure this link will work, but you can just look it up)

Gray Wagtail might also be considered.
