Little Forktail

Enicurus scouleri


Little forktails are so named for their distinctly forked tail, which they bob up and down in the manner of wagtails in their characteristic riverside perch. They often dive underwater, somewhat akin to dippers, for short periods of time, and feed on aquatic insects. Their extensive range stretches from Afghanistan to Vietnam, where their distinct black-and-white shape is often spotted next to water bodies.
