Black-naped Oriole

The Oriolus chinensis (scientific name) or black-naped oriole is found not only in forests, but also gardens and plantations across many parts of Asia. A medium-sized bird, the black-naped oriole has a bright yellow plumage, with a black band around its eyes to the back of its head, like an eye mask. The wing tips and tail feathers are black, with yellow undertail coverts. It has a stout pink beak. The diet of this bird is comprised mainly of berries. But they also eat insects and nectar from big flowers. An average clutch has 2-3 eggs, which are incubated by the female alone for 14-16 days. Once the eggs hatch the male takes the responsibility of feeding and guarding. Its IUCN listing is the LEAST CONCERN.
