The drongo is black because it is built that way; its tendency is to produce black feathers.
The drongo builds earlier, for it is usually feeding its young while the oriole is incubating.
The drongo appears well adapted at Rota, where it prefers cultivated areas and the bombed village sites to thick woodlands.
My lack of knowledge of the habits of the drongo cuckoo is, however, not my chief reason for desiring to write about it.
The drongo cuckoo is as like the king-crow as one pea is to another.
May not the blackness and the forked tail of the drongo cuckoo have arisen in the same way as they arose in the king-crow?
The drongo cuckoo (Surniculus lugubris) is a bird of which I know practically nothing.
This drongo was seen in areas where the trees had been cut, sitting on limbs and darting out after insects.
This being so, it is quite unnecessary for me to describe the drongo cuckoo; it is the image of a king-crow.
On the other hand, a captive Racket-tailed drongo rejected toads when offered to it.
