User's notes

Small bird, not more than 20cm from beak to tip of the tail. Most feathers a light grey. Distinctive black stripe up the center of a white area at the middle of it's tail when fanned out. There were several individuals present, but I only got the photos of one. All were taking turns in either displaying their fanned-out tail as shown, or flying at each other (nor sure if was gaining attention or "shoo-ing" behaviors).
