Artist Statement

The Tablas Drongo lives on Tablas Island in the Philippines, where there is little remaining forest cover, mainly due to agriculture. Rough estimates of individuals left range from 70-400. They hawk insects in the air, or forage among leaves on trunks in closed-canopy forests. Their distinctive, long, forked tails are particularly attractive, and the word Drongo made me chuckle ( a mild insult in Australia), but of course the future of this species is a serious concern.
