Fantails

 (Family: Rhipiduridae)

These are small, active insectivores, with a conspicuous broadly fan-shaped tail. None of the five species recorded in Australia are endemic. The Lord Howe Grey Fantail Rhipidura fuliginosa cervina is listed as extinct. The Willie Wagtail R. leucophrys is one of the best known and widespread birds in Australia.
