Pīwakawaka

Rhipidura fuliginosa placabilis

Description:

During waking hours the fantail is almost never still. It flits from perch to perch, sometimes on the ground but mostly on the twigs of a tree or any other convenient object, looking out for flying insects. The birds are not shy, and will often flit within a few metres of people, because this way, it is able to catch any small flying insects that may have been disturbed by human activities. We met this cute little bird, while we were walking on a track, in Queen Elizabeth park, Kapiti coast.
