Drongos are black birds with elongated tail feathers that turn outwards and resemble a fish-tail. This one is a juvenile Spangled Drongo, identifiable by the brown eye and brownish feathers. When an adult it will have a red eye and iridescent blue spangles on its breast. They are common along the east and north coasts of Australia and can usually be seen on a prominent perch or in erratic darting flight.
