Spangled Drongo mimic

Just wanted to share
The last few days, the Spangled Drongos have turned up in my backyard near Mt Warning Murwillumbah. I was standing in the driveway the other day and I could hear a Pied Butcherbird call. I’m looking up between the leaves above my driveway expecting a Butcherbird and instead I see a Spangled Drongo sitting there, doing part of the Pied Butcherbird call followed by a Spangled Drongo sound…
Mimicked it perfectly. Didn’t realise they would do that.
I’m finding a lot of birds mimic more than I realised..
