Fantail

This little fantail is my all time favourite bird. They flutter around full of energy (which makes them very tricky to get photos of) and happiness – singing all the way!
In Maori mythology, the fantail is a messenger and brings news from the gods to the people. Their Maori name is Pīwakawaka.
Do you have a favourite bird? I would love to hear about them!xobec

  1. I love fantails too. You’ve done very well to get these photos. The last time I tried to snap one, she was just too quick. And that last shot is fantail-tastic (sorry).
