Fork-tailed drongo preying on another miscellaneous bird (juvenile shaft-tailed whydah is the best guess)

There are two different definitions of “savage”: one for wild animals and one for humans.

In the human narrative, “savage” implies that there is a cruelty in a person or their actions, whereas in the wild it simply means an animal is being true to its wild, ferocious nature.

There is no malice implied in this latter case, or at least there shouldn’t be.

There are some small birds out there – like the fork-tailed Drongo pictured here – whose true nature is seldom observed, but if you spend enough time with them you may come to realise that they too – by the proper wildlife definition of the word – are absolutely savage.

PS: you should follow @jamotyrrell, he did all the work here I’m just sharing it with you.
