I have moved to a new home http://sillyreflections.com See you there! You can read this article directly here: Black Drongo
Black Drongo (Dicrurus macrocercus):
This dark bird is quite common in this part of the world, almost always seen alone and thinking! The complete jet black body and the long majestic will attract your eyes when spotting this. You can find it mostly near houses, fields and all over the place in our IIT. Also, some of them have already started collecting twigs for nesting this season! Although they are silent most of the time, look out for the harsh voice and fearsome look in its eyes. Yeah, you can go close enough to look into its eyes 😉
1. Completely black body
2. Black forked tail
3. Dull and completely black eyes (a feature distinct from other drongos here)
4. A metallic blueish shine on the coat on adults
5. A white spot below the eyes at the gape (base of beak) for those who have keen eyesight 🙂
So, when you have a look around for these identify with help of some pictures too.
