My take on the rare migrant (white-faced) Ashy Drongo (Dicrurus leucophaeus salangensis). There are 16 recognized subspecies of the Ashy Drongo (according to HBW-IBC). The resident subspecies D.l.whiteheadi found in the Palawan island group is a darker shade of grey and lacks the white oval face patches. – Djop
