The Taveuni silktail is a species of bird endemic to Fiji. This beautiful bird looks superficially like a diminutive bird-of-paradise but it is actually closely related to the fantails. Finsch named the species after Victoria, eldest daughter of Queen Victoria, who was then Crown Princess of Germany.
