    I think this is Greater Racket tail Drongo. The distinctive tail rackets and the crest of curled feather in front of the face clearly visible. Good eye contact and nice composition. Thanks for sharing.

    The eye has come out well. The lovely tail racket is nice to watch. I always wonder how they manage the long tail while flying within vegetation and what purpose the long tail serves. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,

    Sharp image. Greater Racket -Tailed Drongo. Backward curving crest is smaller in peninsular India. Thanks for sharing. SaktiWild
