Fantail [Piwakawaka] are native New Zealand birds. They are perching birds.

They have wings and claws. They have good eyesight. Their tail has ten feathers. They have a small beak. They are 16cm long.

They are from Australia, North Island and South Island of New Zealand. They live in forest trees.

They eat insects from the ground and from the air. They catch insects in their beak.

In August-January, they lay three to four grey and brown eggs.

  1. I didn’t know that fantails are found in Australia as well. I always thought that they are New Zealand native birds and there are not many of them.
    Thanks for sharing !
