Black Drongo

Just like in the previous post, this Black Drongo too visited my ship when we were about 250 kilometers off the Gujarat coast.
This one had a broken beak, probably the result of a fight. The bird ensured that it always sat on a spot with a vantage point .The easiest way yo recognize this Drongo is by the white patch below its eye, none of the similar looking Drongo species have it.The bird was hunting and feeding on the scores of grasshoppers that had somehow landed on my ship.
Camera : Sony H-7 , f/4.8 , 1/200
