POWERED BY MERLIN

A unique Javan endemic, this species’ namesake rufous tail sets it apart from the other two fantails on the island. Also note white throat and “angry” eyebrows. An active inhabitant of foothill and montane forests, often moving with mixed flocks in tangled vegetation in the lower nad middle levels of forest. Song is a comical squeaky series of up-and-down notes. Call is a dry “chrit.”
