Hair Crested Drongo
Scientific Name : Dicrurus hottentottus

The Hair-crested Drongo (Dicrurus hottentottus) is an Asian bird of the family Dicruridae. This species was formerly considered conspecific with Dicrurus bracteatus, for which the name "Spangled Drongo" formerly used for both is now usually reserved. Some authorities include the Sumatran Drongo (D. sumatranus) in D. hottentottus as subspecies (Lepage 2003).

Hair-crested Drongos move in small flocks and are very noisy.
