Spangled Drongo

Dicrurus hottentotus


I spotted this bird perching after catching a large wasp. The wasp was turned around and held in the beak head first and then crushed before being swallowed whole. The bird then wiped its beak on the perch.


Forested campus


These birds have glossy feathers, a crest of long, wire-like feathers on the head and square-ended tail with outer feathers turned in.
