Chestnut-naped Forktail – female

posted in: birds, Species | 0

The Chestnut-naped Forktail (Enicurus ruficapillus) is not an easy bird to see (very shy) or images are in dark stream locations.

Above is a female seen foraging along the river bank. Will often raise or lower her tail and use the white tail-flash at the observer.

A video-gif of this behaviour is shown here:
