Eurasian Golden Oriole
Passerine Birds

Photo of the Eurasian Golden Oriole, Oriolus oriolus. Even though it is very conspicuous (males are yellow, females are green), it is hard to spot it in the green foliage during the nesting period. Its call is loud and very melodic – even more than the nightingale’s.
