DICRURIDAE (2 species)

Drongo macrocercus Black Drongo
D. m. harterti Mariana Is (Int Rota, self-int Guam).

D. bracteatus Spangled Drongo
NOTE: Solomon Is forms were considered by Doughty et al (1999) specifically distinct from D. bracteatus based on morphology, habitat, behavior, and vocalizations. While this may be correct, Dickinson (2003) notes that the reasoning for this change has not yet been published, and, if it was, the correct specific epithet would be longirostris, of which solomonensis is a synonym. Mayr and Diamond (2001) considered bracteatus conspecific with D. hottentottus.
