The clutch of eggs is laid - the wait begins.
  Grey fantails are common and widespread in our eucalypt forests and woodlands .
 They forage in foliage for insects and usually travel in pairs or companies. Their distinctive feature is a spreading tail which switches to and fro and flight patterns that include stunts , loops and dives after flying insects.( Maybe Bert can insert a recording of their call).
 This one is in our shed and has just starting sitting on her eggs. I sneaked this photo of her but she does look happy about my presence. I will leave her in peace for a few weeks and see what emerges from her clutch of  three creamy , spotted with light brown eggs.
