The fork-tailed drongo is a medium-sized bird at 25 cm in length, including the tail. The fork-tailed drongo has a mainly glossy black plumage, with the wings being a little duller. This bird has a large head with a hooked black bill and a red eye. The tail is deeply forked. The fork-tailed drongo can be easily mistaken for a southern black flycatcher as the two birds are very similar in appearance, except the drongo has a red eye and the flycatcher has a brown eye.
