The Greater Racket-tailed Drongo, Dicrurus Paradiseus , is a beautiful and common bird found in many national parks in Thailand.Its large size, black body, tall crest and long forked tail with pendants makes this species easy to recognize it.It inhabits in broadleaved forests, secondary growth and plantations up to 1700 m.The are quite conspicuous and noisy, usually perching on exposed branches and they feed on insects.

I took this picture around the campground in Erawan National Park, where it s fairly common.
