517 Eurasian Golden Oriole

The Eurasian Golden Oriole or simply Golden Oriole (Oriolus oriolus) male has striking black and yellow plumage, but the female is a drabber greenish bird. It is a migrant bird spending summers in Europe and West Asia, but winters in South Africa and the Indian Subcontinent. It is a shy and difficult to see bird as it gets well camouflaged due to its colors in the canopy of trees. It has a remarkably sweet fluting song weela-wee-ooo or or-iii-ole.
