Male Dark-Throated Oriole

3rd October 2009, Kemensah, Selangor

The  photos of the male Dark-Throated Oriole (Oriolus xanthonotus) in the previous post was shot on a misty morning with strong backlight. This is a better shot.

He flew in together with the Sultan Tit after the rain and fortunately he landed on a low  branch. Just managed one shot before he disappeared.

  1. And a great shot it is... beautiful markings and colors... quite different from our Baltimore Oriole. It was so good of him to let you have this portrait... he seems very curious about you too.
