Description

A small native forest bird known for its chirpy nature as it flits from branch to branch alongside trampers in New Zealand bush, waiting for insects to appear. Using their fanned tail, they are very maneuverable, changing direction quickly whilst catching moths, flies, spiders, wasps and beetles on the wing. They seldom feed on the ground. The Fantail lifespan is quite short (less than 3 years) but these busy little birds breed early and prolifically with as many as 5 layings in one season. That's a lot of nest building and feeding!
