~DRONGO-A-GO-GO~

Australia

The beautiful & fascinating spangled drongo, one of my favourite birds.

The spangled drongo (Dicrurus bracteatus) is an accomplished mimic (imitating perfectly the warning cry of the pied butcherbird, among others) & an astonishingly beautiful bird with its striking eye colour, forked tail & iridescent plumage. These were all photographed locally in northern Brisbane.
