The Golden Oriole!


The Golden Oriole, also known as the Eurasian Golden Oriole is the only member of the oriole family of passerine birds breeding in the northern hemisphere temperate regions.

Adult males can be told apart from the Eurasian golden oriole by the black of the eye stripe extending behind the eye. The Indian golden oriole is a partial migrant. It breeds in Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Nepal, as well as much of India. The Indian populations are largely resident while other populations are migratory.[2]

It is an summer migrant in Europe & Western Asia. Their call is a screech like a jay but the song is a beautiful fluting weela-wee-ooo or or-ill-ole, unmistakable once heard!

This bird was under treatment at Jivdaya as it was suffering form sever dehydration . It was treated and was soon rehabilitated within eleven days of treatment.
