New Zealand Fantail /Piwakawaka (Rhipidura fuliginosa) (Rhipuridae: Fantails)
The New Zealand Fantail is a widespread bird in New Zealand and is found in most patches of native bush and forest. It can be very confiding and will follow you to catch insects you disturb. Closely related to Australia's Grey Fantail vimeo.com/71012991, this bird seems to spend much more time displaying its amazing tail than its Australian cousin. Filmed at several locations around Rotorua in the central North Island.
