Sightings of Black-and-crimson Oriole

posted in: birds, Miscellaneous | 0

I saw adult female Black-and-crimson Oriole (Oriolus consanguineus malayanus) three times on this trip, which was unusual, twice as a participant of a mixed foraging party (bird wave) with Chestnut-capped Laughingthrushs (Garrulax mitratus), Common Green Magpies (Cissa chinensis) and other birds.

It is said by Handbook of the Birds of the World Alive (2019) to be “a common participant of mixed-species feeding” but this has not been my experience locally.
