Spangled Drongo

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Bronwyn VAUGHAN

Small black satiny bird with vibrant blue spots around its neck. Bright red eyes. Lives mainly north eastern coastal areas of Australia. Mimicks other birds in its feeding area - lives mainly on insects. Another feature is the tail feathers which look like crossed fingers. Photo taken of Drongo sitting in my frangipani tree in my garden in July/Agust 2012.

Location: Mount Coolum, Queensland - Australia
