Goa, India - December 2004

Golden Orioles are shy birds who are often hard to spot in the dense foliage in the high canopy. Both of the birds in the photos above and below are either females or immature males. Adult males are a bright lemon colour with black wings and lores (the area of feathers between the bill and the eye).
