We love the Fantail (Maori name ‘Piwakawaka’) because it’s a friendly, cheeky bird, much like New Zealanders. Using its fanned tail to complete impressive aerial acrobatics, the fantail is inquisitive and friendly to the point of tameness.
With its cheery ‘cheet cheet’ the Fantail can be seen flitting about the heads of gardeners and trampers, catching any tiny bugs disturbed by humans walking by. Smart birds.
Our Fantail is:
- Slightly larger than real life, coming in at 18cm high
- easily installed with just a hammer (pre-drill hard wood)
- designed in 4mm bullet-proof mild steel that forms a beautiful patina of rust that changes with the seasons
- shipped to you quickly
- makes an ideal gift for anyone who has that positive kiwi outlook on life
