Black-naped oriole, Oriolus chinensis , is a frequent visitor (or permanent inhabitant) of the raintrees in the Methodist College Kuala Lumpur compound. The raintrees also host many oriental magpie robins and the occasional elusive kingfisher (yet unidentified), and also a spot for Asian koels to converge occasionally. The pictures below were taken by phone cameras.
Watch this video shorts to hear the sounds that this particular oriole was listening to.
Orioles are known to imitate the calls of other birds.
