Spangled Drongo Photos

Dicrurus bracteatus

I swear some of the names for birds, landmarks, cities, etc. in Australia were just people sitting around a bar, tossing out the most memorable or funny sounding name possible. Spangled Drongo?  Sounds like a cartoon character! But I soon learned what "Spangled Drongo" must stand for in Latin..."Bird who doesn't want a photograph taken". I saw quite a few in and around Port Douglas. But the only (decent) photo I got of the species was of a young one sitting on a fence.
