Philippine Drongo-cuckoo

Surniculus velutinus Sharpe, 1877

The Philippine Drongo-Cuckoo (Surniculus velutinus) is a bird of the cuckoo family found only in the Philippines. It belongs to the genus Surniculus along with the Asian Drongo-Cuckoo (S. lugubris). The two were previously classified as a single species but are now often separated based on differences in calls and juvenile plumage. Source: Wikipedia
