Meerkat Cheated by Drongo bird ;)

Drongos, common in South Africa, have glossy black feathers and red eyes. These birds usually get meals the honest way, such as capturing insects in mid-air using their incredible aerial skills. But at other times, like on cold mornings when few insects are flitting around, the drongos turn to a life of crime. The drongos are able to mimic the sounds made by many different species that inhabit its desert environment.
