Bronzed Drongo

The Bronzed Drongo (Dicrurus aeneus), is a small Asian bird. They are restricted to the Old World tropics. It is a resident breeder in tropical southern Asia from India east to southern China and Indonesia. It is usually found in moist broadleaved forest.

These are aggressive and fearless birds, 9.44 inches in length, and will attack much larger species if their nest or young are threatened. The adult Bronzed Drongo has spangled metallic green-blue plumage, and the tail is long and shallowly forked. The young bird is duller and brownish with less spangling. The Bronzed Drongo has short legs and sits very upright while perched prominently, like a shrike. It is insectivorous.
