A forktail is a small insectivorous bird that belongs to the genus Enicurus.

It has a long forked tail, which gives it its common name.

Forktails are mostly found in Asia, especially in the Himalayan region, where they inhabit forested streams and rivers.

They have different plumage patterns depending on the species, but they usually have some combination of black, white, grey, and chestnut colours.

Some examples of forktail species are:
  • The little forktail (Enicurus scouleri) has a black head, throat, and upper breast, a white lower breast and belly, and a black-and-white tail.
    It also has a white spot behind the eye and a white band across the wing.

  • The spotted forktail (Enicurus maculatus) has a black head, neck, and upper breast, a white lower breast and belly with black spots, and a black-and-white tail.
    It also has a white eyebrow and a white patch on the nape.

  • The white-crowned forktail (Enicurus leschenaulti) has a black head, neck, and upperparts, a white lower breast and belly, and a black-and-white tail.
    It also has a white crown and a white band across the wing.

Forktails are vocal birds that produce loud whistling calls.

They feed on insects that they pick from stones along the water.

These birds nest in rock crevices and lay 2-4 eggs.

Forktails are part of the Old World flycatcher family, Muscicapidae, which includes other birds such as robins, chats, and wheatears.
