Gooday Roy....I live in FN Qld.(Cairns)....have a had a pair of drongo's appearing in my courtyard..around 5-5:45 every night...for about the last week or always find the same frond of bamboo cane to jump around on.. precariously so...and has night after night ripped short  shoots of cane off....then just dropped them into my yard...    none have been retrieved that I can see so I guess it is not a nesting thing..    the other bird seems to keep lookout in adjacent trees and bushes...joins the other for a short time for a 'loud' moment...then they depart.....would love to know if this behaviour has any meaning....or is it just another part of their 'erratic' nature.....generally I find them a delight to observe
Cheers Alan
