Indian Golden Oriole

These golden Orioles are the flying egg yolks  of our backyard. They standout and are a eye-turner in our garden.The species was once considered to be a subspecies of the Eurasian Golden Oriole, but has been elevated to a full species. Adult males can be told apart from the Eurasian Golden Oriole by the black of the eye stripe extending behind the eye.
These pair of Orioles, frequent a drumstick tree and are quite shy, even after seeing me everyday.
