The Rarity in spotlight
FORK TAILED DRONGO CUCKOO
This bird was perched for quite a long time and we knew that this was something different. It was then that we found out that this was a rare fort tailed drongo cuckoo.
It is a brood parasite on small babblers. It is not known how or whether the drongo-like appearance benefits this species but it is suspected that it aids in brood-parasitism just as hawk-cuckoos appear like hawks.
