Greater Racket-tailed Drongo

Dicrurus paradiseus


one of the most spectacular birds that I've easily spotted. distinctive in having elongated outer tail feathers with webbing restricted to the tips.


tropical rainforest edge


I spotted this near the entrance to the Dairy Farm nature reserve. This bird landed in a tree just beside the trail and was quite calm, allowing me to approach fairly closely.
