Bronzed Drongo

The Bronzed Drongo is a small bird belonging to the drongo group. They are resident in the forests of the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia. They capture insects flying in the shade of the forest canopy by making aerial sallies from their perches. They are very similar to the other drongos of the region but are somewhat smaller and compact with differences in the fork depth and the patterns of gloss on their feathers. They are found singly or in a group of two to three and can be very noisy. I was alerted to the presence of this bird by its cries. The photo was clicked from the bedroom window.
