Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A streak-breasted oriole with a rather long, lipstick-pink bill. Male is yellow with a glossy black hood and dark wings. Female is olive-green above. Both sexes have dark red eyes. Inhabits lowland and hill forests and forest edges, typically moving in the upper levels of the forest. Sometimes found singly, sometimes in pairs or mixed flocks. Song is a short but fluidly melodic, often with the last note stretched out. Gives a harsh, jay-like “chew!”.
