Black-headed Oriole Oriolus larvatus
20 January 2014
This species frequents dry forest, especially acacia and broadleaf woodlands, and dense shrubby areas. Despite its striking colour it is more often seen than heard, camouflaging well in the foliage where it gleans insects and their larvae. This single bird represented the only reasonable photographic opportunity we had, but it did not perch for long and one had to be content with a few quick shots.
