We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust

It is attractively marked with brown streaky upperparts, buffy underparts and a prominent pale supercilium. The head is grey, the bill is short and the tail is long and spiny.
