Oriolus oriolus (Linnaeus 1758). Female on a tree Morus alba (white mulberry),
Golden Oriole

In my WS I have another photo of this bird

Oriolus oriolus is a passerine bird in the family Oriolidae (L 22-25 cm).
The adult male is a striking bright yellow bird with black wings, black tail and reddish bill. The adult female is green above and off-white with fine streaking below. It is a shy bird, and even the male is remarkably difficult to see in the dappled yellow and green leaves of the canopy.

Oriolus oriolus is the only member of the family Oriolidae breeding in northern hemisphere temperate regions. It is a summer migrant in Europe and western Asia and spends the winter season in the tropics. It inhabits tall deciduous trees in woodland, orchards or parks and spends much of its time in tree canopies.
The name "oriole" was first used in the 18th century and is an adaptation of the scientific Latin genus name, which is derived from the Classical Latin "aureolus" meaning golden.

In Cyprus Oriolus oriolus is a fairly common spring and autumn passage migrant. It is also a regular but rare and localised breeding species.
