Very nicely done! Black birds of any kind are always difficult to photograph and show its detail, but obviously it wasn't difficult in this case! You've got a great composition with excellent DOF. Awesome work.
BTW, it is interesting that you mention using your car as a hide. I used it on several occasions and it works wonderfully. To anyone who hasn't tried it, here are the results. It works!

Great shot of what I always find difficult to capture: a dark/black bird.
Great sharpness and focus.
Lovely colours and good dof.
Greetings from Holland.

I heard u had a blast of time on sunday...and of course the picture speaks of it in volume. there is a patch just underneath the eye of the bird..is it dirt or a gash received during territorial fights.

Delightful capture of the Black Drongo, Goutham.
The entire bird is in sharp focus, but the eye in particular is absolutely stunning.
Thanks for sharing and best regards.

Goutham, Has the 180mm ever failed? Great picture. Love the details on the tail. A soft light would have helped in lighting up the belly of the Drango.
