Photographer's Note

A drongo takes off. This bird is know to make alarm calls informing other species of bird about presence of a predator.

The word drongo is used in Australian English as a mild form of insult tantamount to the term "idiot". This usage derives from an Australian racehorse of the same name (apparently after the spangled drongo, Dicrurus bracteatus) in the 1920s that never won despite many starts - wiki
