A Common resident of the Kruger National Park, the Forked-tail Drongo (Afrikaans name, Mikstertbyvanger)feeds mainly on bees and wasps but has been known to eat ticks, small birds and chicks.


The Drongo also steals food from other birds and mimics the alarm call of the Suricates to make them drop their prey.

A well-known bird that is characterised by a deeply-forked tip in its long tail. Seen in the Kruger National Park.
