Hair-crested Drongo [hottentottus]

Dicrurus hottentottus [hottentottus] (= Dicrurus hottentottus hottentottus) (Linnaeus, 1766)

The hair-crested drongo is an Asian bird of the family Dicruridae. This species was formerly considered conspecific with Dicrurus bracteatus, for which the name "spangled drongo" – formerly used for both – is now usually reserved. Some authorities include the Sumatran drongo in D. hottentottus as subspecies. Source: Wikipedia
