Drongo Cuckoo? Or a Drongo?

August 31, 2009

For some birding friends of mine who, looking at a non-typical tail on a Black Drongo, id’ed it as a Drongo Cuckoo:

Sometimes drongos get a divided tail Sometimes in this task they fail If we birders get the id wrongo It’s we who’re cuckoo, not the drongo!

Here’s one pic I took of the BLACK DRONGO, a long time ago:
