Orioles joined green-pigeons in enjoying a drizzle

posted in: Feathers-maintenance, Videography | 0

It was evening and the rain had just turned into a light drizzle. A handful of Pink-necked Green-pigeons (Treron vernans) were gathering on the leafless end branches of a tree in the far distance. They were enjoying the tail end of a light drizzle, soaking in the drizzle and preening their feathers.

Then suddenly a single Black-naped Orioles (Oriolus chinensis) flew in and perched among the green-pigeons. This was followed by three other orioles that perched among the leafy branches slightly away from the green-pigeons.

The orioles spent about 20 minutes together with the green-pigeons before they flew off.

It is noted that these two species coexist peacefully with each other…
