The interesting bird "Greater Rattle-Tailed Drongo" gave me an opportunity to photograph her in a new pose. This happened as she was approached by her mate. She wanted to show her indifference, as she was busy singing and teasing a squirrel then. Or, she just wanted to tease her mate! Anyway, this came suddenly, and I was just lucky enough to shoot it before she came back to her demure, singing-lady posture.

I've seen the new photo, the pose does look kinda silly to me, but if i was a male bird, who knows! It must be a signal only the birds know about. We have 3 magpies here that are harassing a robin. The magpies i think are after the robins eggs. I think that's why we don't have enough singing birds around right now! Take care Mivarg.

Glad that you have noticed this. Magpies after robin eggs - that's sad, but may be that's nature's law. I love the singing birds very much! I am reading some books on birds, and so much thrilled to find out many new things!

You are right there! I am sure that many hollywood movie makers and actors are inspired by these birds in their true spirits!

It's got to be hard to try and get a better focused picture? Would be great to have one not as fuzzy. Looks awesome still none the less. I rated the photo and added a comment as well. Keep posting pics of her for us. I love seeing them. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

This was taken from a long distance, in the evening. The bird does not come very close, they sit at a safe distance, usually in a high tree branchmor the electric lines. I have a reasonably good shot of it, but it's sad that I cannot put an image in the response section yet. I will start a new discussion with that picture today itself. I hope you will look for it. I am glad that there are some bird lovers here!
