Dark-Throated Orioles of Kemensah

15 August 2009, Kemensah, Selangor





Lifer 2: Was on the wrong track in thinking that it’s a Bulbul. Finally managed to ID this bird as a female Dark-Throated Oriole (Oriolus xanthonotus). She was part of a bird wave that came at about 9.30am.















Luckily the first bird I saw this morning (16/08/09) was this male Oriole. These complement the photos of the female that had been taken a day before nicely.
