  3. Another new bird to add to my list ... A Drongo. I haven''t heard of it and don't remember Stewart ever posting it (which means nothing because remembering every post is not likely in my case) Anyway, I seem to like the blackbirds more than most and I love the red eyes. Great shots, Monica ...
