Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large, extremely glossy square-tailed drongo of forest understory, often found with mixed-species flocks. Habitat is this species’ most reliable field mark, as no other drongos are regularly found in forest understory. Overall very glossy black, with red eyes and a fairly long square-tipped tail. Calls are a mix of sharp “chk!” calls and whistles that can be fairly variable.
