This page is a photographic essay showing images of Australian Fantails that include the iconic Willie Wagtail that are found on the Australian mainland and its islands. This group of birds take their name from the habit of constantly spreading their tail feathers into a fan. It is thought that this may be a tool for flushing insects. The nest is a neat cup shape built from spiders web and grass placed on top of a branch.
Images are taken from around Australia by wildlife photographer, Gary Knight. Many Australian birds are unique and have a beauty of their own.
