1. They’re so cute. I love fantails, the way they follow you around to collect any bugs you might have disturbed, coupled with their aerobatic display. I think the most I’ve ever seen was at Wai-o-Tapu in Rotorua…there were loads picking off insects.

  2. To me they are the quintessential New Zealander; a bit cheeky, opportunistic and resourceful. And good at sport 🙂 Their nests are heavily predated by rats so to see so many around gives you an idea how hard they work at survival. Watching this nest has been a real treat. 🙂
