The New Zealand fantail (Rhipidura fuliginosa) is a small insectivorous bird. A common fantail found in the South Island.The species is considered by many to be conspecific (the same) as the grey fantail of Australia and New Caledonia, however due to differences in its calls some authorities now treat it as a separate species.
