november 2017   |   SPANGLED DRONGOS

" Drongo [Australian slang aka] bloody idiot, clown, ratbag, dumb-arse, sandwich short of a picnic   |   thus the  Spangled Drongo, an endearing larrikin with dots ... I love 'em ! "  

Every spring a pair of Spangled Drongos return to the same flame tree in Currumbin Valley to raise a new family.

Chattering birdtalk signals their arrival, the sight of the black fork-tailed acrobat with its flame-red eye flitting amongst flame-red blossoms is an annual highlight.

Relentless 24/7 delivery of insectivorous takeaway, in all shape, size & species, by the doting parents sees offspring-with-attitude fully-fledged and on their way to begin lives of their own in just three weeks.
