The Indian Golden Oriole


A regular visitor on the tree outside my window but doesn't sit for long. Always in a hurry to go somewhere, typical Mumbai resident. 😊

The species was formerly considered to be a subspecies of the Eurasian golden oriole, but is now considered a full species. Adults can be told apart from the Eurasian golden oriole by the black of the eye stripe extending behind the eye. Wikipedia.
