Red-fronted Fantail (Rhipidura rufifrons)

Order Passeriformes
Family Monarchs and fan-tailed flycatchers or fan-tails (Monarchidae)

The size of an adult bird is 15-16.5 cm.
The red-fronted fantail looks very elegant, especially when it unfolds its luxurious tail completely, where each feather has an elegant white trim around the edge.

These birds prey mainly on flying insects, chasing them in flight when they have to maneuver among the dense interweaving of branches and foliage. During hunting, birds usually avoid climbing to a height of more than 5 m from the ground.

Distribution: Area - New Guinea, Pacific Islands, Indonesia, Northern and Eastern Australia. Habitat: Eucalyptus forests, rain forests and mangroves.
