Fork-tailed Drongo

Fork-tailed Drongo

Whenever we encounted a drongo, such as this fork-tailed drongo photographed at the Mkuze hide, I had to fight the urge to shout "A drongo ate my baby!" I am not sure I was always successful in surpressing this urge. Drongos are cool, all-black birds that behave like flycatchers. They would never eat a baby.
