Fantails are found almost everywhere in New Zealand. The only place they can’t be found is in Central Otago and Inland Marlborough, because it’s too frosty.
Fantails will usually be seen alone or in pairs during summer, but will often form flocks during the winter.
Fantails are very good at catching insects in the air - they can change direction very quickly when they are flying.
The fantails main predator is rats.
The New Zealand Fantail is a seasonal breeder, nesting from August to March in the North Island, September to January in the South Island and October to January on the Chatham Islands. They usually raise two or more broods per season. They are very good at breeding which is why they are not extinct.
