    • This bird’s tail is folded like a geisha fan, black on top and white on the bottom layer, they like to open and close the tail and the white feathers show and resemble give appearance of flashes. The female is exactly in shape and size but instead of black color is brown. They are a bit shy and independent not so gregarious. By the way their eyes are red. Thanks M-R! 🙂
