A wonderfully detailed vintage print of Buller's Fantail. The vintage illustration features the fantail, Black and a Pied fantail (Maori name Piwakawaka), and a typical nest. Their scientific names are Rhipidura fuliginosa and R. flabellifera. Originally published in Buller’s Birds, second edition, 1888, this is a modern reproduction taken from an original copy of Buller’s Birds of NZ. The original illustration in Buller’s Birds is by the great 19th Century ornithological artist John Keuleman.
