SPECIES INFO

The White-browed Fantail, Rhipidura aureola, is a small passerine bird.

The White-browed Fantail breeds across tropical southern Asia from India and Sri Lanka east to Vietnam. This species is found in forest and other woodland. Three eggs are laid in a small cup nest in a tree.

Description

The adult White-browed Fantail is about 18 cm long. It has dark brown upperparts, with white spots on the wings, and whitish underparts. The fan-shaped tail is edged in white, and the long white supercilia meet on the forehead. The throat and eyemask are blackish and border whitish moustachial stripes.

The White-browed Fantail is insectivorous, and often fans its tail as it moves through the undergrowth.
