Ever been followed around by a fantail walking through the bush or working in the garden? Fantails use their broad tails to change direction quickly while hunting for insects. They sometimes hop around upside-down among tree ferns and foliage to pick insects from the underside of leaves. Their main prey are moths, flies, spiders, wasps, and beetles, although they sometimes also eat fruit. They seldom feed on the ground.
