Black Headed Oriole

Photographs of a Black headed 'Juvenile Oriole'. When fully mature, the bird will have a pink bill and jet black head. The bird is pretty easy to spot in a forest because of its bright yellow colour.
It feeds on insects, berries and nectar. Along with other mild birds, it flies in the company of the pugnacious Black Drongo. Like I had mentioned earlier in the Drongo post, Drongo is like the policeman of the forest and guards all the nests around his nest and provides protection from other marauding species.
Photographed at Narahari Hill .
