Grey Fantail mid-flight over Melbourne.

A grey fantail captured mid-flight in Melbourne, Victoria.
The most restless of Australia’s fantails, Grey Fantails are almost continually on the move, constantly changing position when perched, the tail swished back and forth, fluttering about in the canopy of trees or darting out after flying insects.
They seem never to keep still. Despite their fluttering flight, they are nevertheless capable of relatively long-distance movements, with some regularly flying across Bass Strait.
Grey Fantails’ movements are particularly complex, with no general rule: birds in each different region have their own individual patterns of movement.
