Hi Geoff, Colin, and everyone else,
I know it's a bit late to add to the mentioned subject, but I thought I let you know that the group of Fairy-wrens in Australia is translated into German as 'Staffelschwanz' species, and Schwanz means tail. So the Blue-breasted Fairy-wren is a Blaubrust-Staffelschwanz.
(He, he, I have no problems with that!)
The term layered tail comes to mind.
        Happy  Fairy-wren spotting,
Kirrama Wildlife Tours
