The Hair-crested Drongo (Dicrurus hottentottus) 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 (D. sumatranus) in D. hottentottus as subspecies (Lepage 2003).
