The genus Bhringa is one of two genera of Drongos which have the outer pairs of tail-feathers greatly lengthened, the middle portion of the shaft being webless. In Bhringa the terminal portions or rackets of these feathers is flat and the shaft equally webbed on both sides, whereas in Dissemurus the web of the inner side of the racket is very narrow. There is no true crest, but the feathers of the forehead are dense and long, lying over nearly the whole length of the bill.
