Pied Fantail on the Dead Grass at the Rusty Steel Fences


Pied Fantail on the Dead Grass at the Rusty Steel FencesPied Fantail
Rhipidura javanica
Malay name – Murai Gila
The grass vine the grew on the steel was kill by weed killer, because it grew so thick which block the monsoon drain beside the fence.
The grey/black and white colour of the bird is camouflage very well in that dead grass.
But ‘mad bird’ which never stay still, so I can see it from a far!

  1. I remember seeing it on my trip there. We have similar restless type here in White-browed Fantail which is also referred as the Drunken Piper, rightly so.

  2. Yes, it twist its body left and right while fanning the beautiful black and white tail.The pictures of it open \’fantail\’ are all blur and not worth posting here.
