Oh how lovely this drongo is Mustafa!! And what a stunning picture you've taken of him my friend.

I was lucky enough to see the only drongo to live in Australia last year. And that was a lovely bird too - Spangled Drongo.

Many thanks for that memory lad.
A beautiful view showing that fork tail and captured with the perfect head turn Mustafa!
Showing off his forked tail perfectly, Mustafa.
