Spangled Drongo is a non-breeding visitor to Sydney, a "reverse migrant",
with larger numbers present in autumn/winter.  They were apparently rare
in Sydney prior to 1948.  I see at least one most winters in the inner
west - usually sitting on a TV antenna.  I'd guess Nielsen Park would
be good drongo habitat.
