Hello friends in TN.

This Black-naped Oriole was captured on this casuarina tree around my workplace.

The Black-naped Oriole (Oriolus chinensis) is a bird of the oriole family and is found in many parts of Asia. There are several distinctive populations within wide distribution range of the species and in the past the Slender-billed Oriole (Oriolus tenuirostris) was included as a subspecies. Unlike the Golden Oriole which only has a short and narrow eye-stripe, the Black-naped Oriole has the stripe broadening and joining at the back of the neck. Males and females are very similar although the wing lining of the female is more greenish. The bill is pink and is stouter than in the Golden Oriole.


Thanks for viewing.

Hello Jusni,
A species of Oriole rarely shown on TN and taken from a fine POV with good clarity and natural colours. These birds are hard to photograph well as they tend to keep in the shade that is not so deep in a Casuarina tree.
Thanks and best regards,

Salam Jusni,
this is a marvellous capture of the bird. This oriole really greet us in the morning in good loud and clear howls.
Exciting view among the green leaves of casuarina.
Nice yellow feathers to give a pleasant contrast.

Bonita y dificil prespectiva, Bellos colores y encuadre.
