Black-Naped Oriole Behaving Like Mangrove Pitta

posted in: Feeding strategy, Videography | 0

Samson Tan LINK documented a juvenile Black-Naped Oriole (Oriolus chinensis) at Singapore’s Pasir Ris Park that behaved rather strange. It hopped on the ground and looked into crab burrows as if seeking out food.

According to Samson, “This is exactly the same behavior that I observed on a Mangrove pitta. What a coincidence that this is the exact place/spot that I saw my first Mangrove Pitta (Pitta megarhyncha) LINK.”
