The fantail.
I'm not sure if fantails are only found here in NZ or not, but I remember being told a few different stories about what it means should one fly inside our houses, I was only 5 or 6 years old when I was told the stories, so of course I couldn't remember them.. I've not long been on Google and was surprised to find an answer which I've put below.. It's kind of sad a cute little bird like the fantail has a bad rep.. [Image: sad.png]

The fantail or piwakawaka is one of our native birds. ... The Maori people consider it bad luck if a fantail flies inside a building. They say the fantail is a messenger and it's appearance means death or news of death is imminent.
Love many, trust few, paddle your own waka.
