BIRDS OF GOA: APRIL'15 - PART 5

BLACK HEADED ORIOLE

The brightly colored Black Headed Oriole is one of the most beautiful avians to be found in Goa. Though it is common in the region, spotting them amidst the foliage is difficult. I had a tough time clicking this individual in Goa Velha; unfortunately, though it made me run around the bush for sometime, none of the clicks have come out well. A couple of years ago, I had a similar experience with another Oriole while climbing down the Church of Our Lady of the Mount at Old Goa.
