[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Grey Fantail (Rhipidura fuliginosa) is a very common bird through most of Australia, yet this is the first time Iíve posted it.
They are a very active species, constantly moving their head and tail as they search endlessly for prey. They live in just about any habitat from urban backyards to wet eucalypt forest, through they seem to avoid rainforests.

Hello Chris,
Fascinating little species you have here, it's colours aren't very showy but that tail is something else. Your camera work here is spot on, great work.
