Dark-Throated Oriole And Great Iora sharing the same habitat

May 2011, Kenyir


After numerous encounters with these two species, I noticed that on many occasions, if either one is sighted, the other is usually nearby, at least that’s what I found out in Kenyir …..


The Dark-Throated Oriole has got to be one of my favorite bird, it’s bold colors, sweet sounding song and confiding nature makes it one of the most interesting bird to observe and photograph…. 


Here is the Male Dark-Throated Oriole

Dark-Throated Oriole4


Even though of a different different species, this Great Iora seem to happily accommodate the presence of DT Oriole….I believe they both share the same food source too…

  1. I just love the first image of the oriole. Beautiful!

  2. Very beautiful series of photos! You've done a great job on both of the species.
    The orioles are just awesome.

  3. Symphony in yellow! Stunning images Ari. Great Iora is a rarely photographed species, and yours are the best I've seen anywhere. I may ask for one of these for a future Suara Enggang!

  4. Superb series. I've yet to have that Iora in my viewfinder.

  5. Thanks for sharing the beautiful birds
