The Golden Oriole
European Golden Oriole
Eurasian Golden Oriole
is the only member of the oriole family of passerine birds breeding in northern hemisphere temperate regions. It is a summer migrant in Europe and western Asia and spends the winter season in the tropics.
Golden Oriole inhabit tall deciduous trees in woodland, orchards or parks and spend much of their time in tree canopies. They feed on insects and fruit. They build neat nests in tree forks and lay 3-6 eggs.
The male is striking in the typical oriole black and yellow plumage, but the female is a drabber green bird.
