Birds in Neighbourhood - 15

I get to see variety of birds around my parents house in Udupi. I have captured few of them in my camera and one such beautiful bird is Indian Golden Oriole




They are similar to the Eurasian Golden Oriole but has more yellow in the tail and has a paler shade of red in the iris and bill. 



The male has the black eye stripe extending behind the eye, a large carpal patch on the wing and wide yellow tips to the secondaries. The streaks on the underside of females is more sharp. 


Their inhabit in a range of habitats including open deciduous forests, semi-evergreen forests, woodland, forest edge, mangroves, open country with scattered trees, parks, gardens orchards and plantations.

The Golden Oriole is indeed beautiful. How well they hide away in the sunlit trees Rajesh.

Different colouring than the Balitmore oriole we have, but one can definitely tell the breed.

Beautiful coloration...and fantastic captures Rajesh.

You are fortunate. I haven't seen an oriole in years! They are such beautiful birds. We do have cardinals in our yard and they're pretty, too.

That is a very stricking bird, and I bet it wasn't that easy to get the shots.
All the best gordon.
