    Pīwakawaka is the more commonly known fantail name but I like that version too. It has many names: http://www.maoridictionary.co.nz/index.cfm?wordID=5687

    It’s a brilliant sighting!

    Aroha Ivy and Violet Annie are beauties.

      Thanks for the site 🙂 maybe its not fantail? just check yeah there’s two listed in my Māori dictionary.
      Welcome to my blog 🙂 where abouts are you from?
      I think they are beautiful too! Hmm maybe I should think about Aroha up front 🙂

        Wellington!

        I love Aroha (ok, that was redundant). I know of one 9 year old but other than that I only come across it on older females. Oh and the new Shortie Street character who gets on my last nerve. My fault for watching the show in the first place.
