Fantail in house

I have just googled this. "Fantail in house" - " Some tribes believe a fantail in your house is a sign of death. Others believe it is a sign of good fortune".

Why did I google this? because a few hours ago I had a happy fantail in my living room - moving from one lightbulb to the next. Then when I got the broom - to direct it outside it flew out of its own accord.

The Ngati Porou in me believes that fantails are not a good sign. But then again as I am not really Ngati Porou maybe I can interpret is a sign of good fortune - a signal of good change.


The thing is I take these signs seriously even if I don't know know what they mean. A fantail doesn't just fly into your house unelss it has something to say. Furthermore, a fantail is not even a common sight on my property little own the prospect of flying into my house.

It has unsettled both Ali and me.


I guess the fact that the fantail was happy could allow interpretation to be on the side of good fortune.

i think you're probably taking the right approach in your interpretation. as in it could be the chance for a new beginning in one area of your life?

The same thing happened to me last night. It was about 10.10pm and a fantail flew inside. It was rather disorientated and we struggled to direct it outside. Even when it was close to the door it couldn't quite get there. I am worried as i don't like things that are associated with bad omens. I am an expectant mother and mother to a 5 year old and would hate anything to happen to me or my family... It's freaked me out!

hey
something in the air I believe as the exact same thing happened to me on Friday. Maybe just a big day out for our feathered friends.
PS: So far all good and no bad news :)

Hi there! Iv'e had a wee fantail hangin out at my ranch slider door lately, It would come in if the door was open im sure! Not so sure if im very keen for it to come in after reading the superstitions though :-) Maybe they are just out and about at the moment, with winter coming they may just want to keep warm hehe!

Very cute wee birds can't mean such sad news surely!

I would love to know what their visit means. I had one trying to fly inside last week. It kept flying into the ranch slider, trying to get in. Then the next day I went downstairs to the laundry and there was one sitting in there, right by the washing machine... don't know how it got in! It flew around my head and then left. Then this morning one came in the ranch slider door and it took me a couple of minutes to get it outside again. It flew all around the house and flew in circles around my head... it was a cheeky wee thing. Thats why I came online to try and find out what it means... however, I haven't found any solid information on the meaning of a fantail visitation, other than it bringing a message of an event that you don't understand until it actually happens. Maybe they serve as a warning that something that will significantly affect you is on your horizon, whether it be tragic or glorious...

We've had a fantail coming into our home five times in the last couple of weeks now. It seems unafraid and seems to want to 'tell' us something, as it sings and flies from one ceiling lamp to the other. It seems to prefer our bedroom and it's droppings fell on my duvet the other day! I feel something really good is about to happen! I believe fantails are all about new beginnings, laughter and happiness!

i was living in a depressing unhappy environment full of arguments, i fell asleep on the couch one day & dreamt of my deceased grandfather, when i woke up a fantail flew into my house, sircled around then flew back out, naturally i worried as i had heard the death stories surrounded by fantails. nothing happened for a while & then not terribly long after, i suddenly up & moved from my toxic environment after another argument & now i am living in a better area & extremely happy. so i now see the fantail as a sign of good things to come, thankyou little fantail

Hi There - we had a fantail fly into our home yesterday - my husband was concerned and rang our son who lives in Australia to make sure all was well. This morning whilst having breakfast the little mite was back, knocking at our ranch slider. I understood fantails to be "messengers" of good or bad news - not soley bringers of "doom and gloom". However, our goldfish has just died! Not sure what to believe right now! Having read all your posts, we are now going to buy a Lotto ticket and hope our little friend was bringing good news and new beginnings rather than foreseeing the loss of our goldfish! I would like to believe we have had the good fortune of experiencing a visit from our little friends! I wish you all good fortune too!

A fantail flew in our house when I was 15 years old and the next day my brother passed away, two weeks later a fantail flew in my face and I fell down a small cliff hurting only my ankle... My Aunty had a miscarriage the next day. Our "good fortune bird" is the Tui and our " warning bird" is the Fantail. I think Fantails are both good and bad news it really just depends on you and your family and finding out which is which, but it's safe to say anyone in my family stay away from the beautiful birds.

I had a wee fantail trying very hard to get thru my front door. I had an experience 2 years ago, when my ex husband called me to ask what a fantail in the house meant - I said it is warning of death - and later that afternoon, his best mate died at the property. Very scary.

So today, the cute little messenger, was told sternly, and polietly, to go away.

I have also been told that fantails that hang around, outside of the house, are angels/spirits of passed loved ones.

I live on a life stlye block and seansons bring the birds. I have had Fan tails stork me around the property and also fly into my home. In all occassions, they have bought a message of someone or an animal close, passing over.I believe we are blessed that they choose to be with us to share their message.

I have had a number of instances where Fantails have flown in to my home and there has been no deaths close to me or great changes however today one flew in and I am aware of two people close to me near death so I wondered???

Jo said...

I have had a fantail come into my lounge today, when I tried to direct it outside it flew into our bedroom and sat on the ceiling lamp. I was so pre-occupied on trying to get it outside safely I didnt realise what I had heard about fantails in the house. It is almost a year ago that a good friend passed away and he owned the house we bought. Also yesterday we found a new home for our much treasured 12 month old pup, which I am struggling with today... I am hoping that it means she is going to have a good life, we feel she is, they are lovely people.

Yesterday a fantail flew in and upstairs yesterday afternoon. Our 16yr old cat was being put to sleep late yesterday. Surprisingly she was quiet on the way there except for a couple of meows, quiet in the waiting room! However yesterday my stepmum also underwent a operation and a cancerous growth was removed.....

I've heard alot about fantails been messenger birds, aparantly if they fly in one entrance and out another it is a sign of death or bad news, if it flys in one entrance and out the same entrance it is new life in any sence wether its a pregnancy, birth or fresh start. A fantail flew into my door and out again a week later I found out I was pregnant unfortunantly 3 weeks later I miscaried im unsure if I was been told of my pregnancy or warned of the loss I would endure. I have a beautiful 15 month old daughter now and just these last few weeks i've noticed a fantail following me it flutters around my windows flys around the deck and swoops at me if I hang washing or stand outside. Unsure what news this lil guy has for me.

When my son was of 18 months old he, we were having a picnic & he tried walking away to the park... A single fantail flew down from a Kowhai tree & danced infront of him before he then returned back to me, he then tried walking to the park again & as I called to him the beautiful fantail flew down to his little level & danced in front of him again until he once again returned. Since then I have thought them to be little spirit birds that watch over us & some what cheecky. My second significant encounter was a visit at my work for 5mins this bird was trying to get in & sung to me. Unfortunatly this was a message of my uncle passing on this day & we found him a few days later... I am trying to find an explaination to this as Two fantails were in our tree today singing & chasing each other they swooped around my head outside & went in & out of our shed... Two little fantails sitting in the tree, singing their lil hearts out I just wonder what it means!!!

About an hour ago a fantail flew into the house & hovered around one of the kitchen light bulbs just long enough for me to see it before it hovered around the lounge light bulb(according to my partner, because I didn't want to look at it any longer)& flew outside & out of sight. Even though I am not a superstitious person I am still concerned about its presence. Only happy thoughts are in my head right now.

ive had 8 fantails visit me while im sitting in my garage in a space of one week! on two occasions 2 fantails, not sure if they are the same ones or different ones each time..they all definitely have something to tell me as they sit there perced on my clothes line chirping and looking at me..i just smile and say hello, they say their piece and then leave:)..this morningings two was different thou..one entered the garage as i was walking in so i stood there and put my hand out, it flew around me twice as if it was thinking whether to land on my hand then decided not to, perched on clothes line chirped then flew away..second one today flew in while me and my sister were sitting there, one almost came at us then screeched as if it got a fright seeing someone else sitting there with me, perced on clothes line then flew out...what does this mean for me?? i have no glue but will eventually find out sooner or later...fantails have been around me visiting me from time to time over the past few years..some would stay and chirp away others would fly straight in and straight out again..but never have i had this many visit me in one week!..ive definitely bonded with these gorgeous birds since, i know for whatever reason they have been around me is never bad, my life has changed for the better since seeing these birds around and i can only guess it means more good changes are to come about..i thought i was the only one here wondering what these little fantails meant but great to see i can share with others who too have had encounters with them...definitely keen to know why so many in one week thou...to be continued:)

My Father passed away on 6th December and his funeral was last week.Over the last couple of weeks we've had Fantails in our garden and although we're in a very built up subdivision they seem to like our trees. Just 10 minutes ago one flew in through the ranchslider into the dining room then did a U turn and flew out. It does seem a little bit ironic after what's happened over the last couple of weeks.

Today a fantail flew into the house and touched my back as I was putting my sons shoes on. My Aunty saw it and almost died on the spot (83 yrs old!). I am hoping for a good omen as there is lots of talk about fantails flying into houses but nothing on if it touches you.

Laura said...

Just reflecting on this post a few years later...... I posted the night after a fantail flew into my house in this thread - and worried for the bad omen.... A few weeks after this post, my little 18 year old sister suffered a massive stroke and was very very close to death. She had life saving brain surgery and was given a very slim chance of making it through the operation.. She survived..... A year later, my grandmother died and at my grandmothers funeral a black fantail was following me around.. it wouldnt go away. I was spooked out... 1 week later my father had a massive stroke almost 1 year to the day of my younger sister. It was also on my daughters 1st birthday.. He also had the same brain surgery but he died as a result. So fantails have been a very very bad omen for me!

For the past week or nearly two i come home to a fantail everytime i go out sometimes two i also did believe it ment death i had one come in before and our dog passed now they wont stay away normally i get them out easy as but i have one that doesn't fly around looking for a way out it hides under things like the bed and have no idea were it is but no its still inside what does it all mean

talei skegg said...

I was pregnant in 2000 and living at my mums during my pregnancy i was very sick with hyporemisis, and while i would rest a fantail would come and sit above my head in a pot plant and sing to me, this eased me he was telling me that my daughter and I would be okay.Sure enough she was born healthy, mum still has fantails that visit regularly, as do i, last year a baby fantail started visiting us he is full grown now and comes in every morning first thing to sing to us, catch whatever flies are hanging round (they getting scarce its winter) we even put up a pole so he can hang out, he comes in quite a few times everyday dances ,flits, sings and shows off to whoever is there (hes not shy)He even says goodnight just before nightfall. This special bird is in no way a bad omen completely the opposite. EMBRACE AND ENJOY YOUR FANTAILS!!!!!
