|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This photograph is from my backyard where it made a nest on a small cinnamon tree and laid eggs.I was climbing in a ladder supported to a coconut tree. So I got eye-level to the bird.|
[The Black-hooded Oriole, Oriolus xanthornus, is a member of the oriole family of passerine birds and is a resident breeder in tropical southern Asia from India and Sri Lanka east to Indonesia.
It is a bird of open woodland and cultivation. The nest is built in a tree, and contains two eggs. The food is insects and fruit, especially figs, found in the tree canopies where the orioles spend much of their time.
The male is striking, with the typical oriole black and yellow coloration. The plumage is predominantly yellow, with a solid black hood, and black also in the wings and tail centre.]wikipedia

Lovely image of this beautiful Oriole, lucky that it has a nest in your backyard, hope to see many more images. Good composition except for that twig in the background. tfs.
This bird's strong and vibrant colouration in its plumage is a great attraction and cannot be missed. Other features that is well captured and seen is the lovely long beak with its sharp tip and the beautiful auburn coloured eye. This looks like a cheeky little fellow, as it has a witty expression on its face. I like the pose in which you captured it, as one can see the lovely detail of the plumage as well as the beautiful rounded tailpiece. Thanks for sharing this brightly coloured Black-hooded Oriole, as it was indeed a pleasure to view its delightful qualities. Best regards.
