Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Beautiful golden oriole with a long, lipstick-red bill and an elegant black band across the eyes. Very similar to Black-naped Oriole, but with a longer, thinner bill, a thinner black eye-band in the adults, and no such band in the juveniles. Tends to be uncommon and local in moist lowland to montane forests, where it frequents coniferous stands. Song is a brief phrase of elegant whistled notes, while the loud, jabbering call is confusingly similar to that of a woodpecker.
