The Grey Fantail is a small grey bird with white eyebrows, throat and tail edges. It is easily recognised by its constantly fanned tail and its agility, they do aerial twists and turns. The Grey Fantail is found throughout Australia, the Soloman Islands, Vanuatu and New Caledonia. They are found in most treed habitats and eat flying insects that they catch by chasing them from the foliage in the treetops. Both sexes are similar in appearance and they partially migrate north during winter. They are very inquisitive and will sometimes approach people. Such a cute little birdie ♥ Sadly we don’t have these in my garden.
