[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The best part of staying in a forest rest house is being one with nature. I was trying to capture a picture of the Golden Oriole for sometime now; however, every time, the beauty gave me a slip. This time around, I got lucky. If not a Golden Oriole, I got this beautiful Black Hooded Oriole.

Facts about Black Hooded Oriole:
These are widespread residents but unrecorded in Pakistan. Adult Males have glossy black heads with contrasting golden-yellow bodies, bold yellow edges to black tertials & yellow tails. Females are similar but have olive yellow mantles.
Habitat: Open broadleaved forests & well wooded areas.
