The Indian golden oriole (scientific name Oriolus kundoo) has many characteristics of the Eurasian golden oriole. However, you’ll note that its tail has more yellows.
This bird has a strong bill, a long tail, and a strong wind. The male Indian golden oriole has a bright yellow plumage that covers much of its body, as well as black tails and wings. It also has an accent in the shape of a black stripe (looks like eyeliner) that runs across and behind his
eyes. A female Indian golden oriole, on the other hand, is sap green on top with dull dark-hued streaks on the bottom. Their crimson irises are the only thing they have in common. These birds make a sharp “krrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrThese species are native to Central Asia and the Indian subcontinent. It lives in a variety of environments. Woodlands, parks, plantations, orchards, open countryside with scattered trees, open deciduous forests, mangroves, and forest margins are examples. They forage for food from the tops of trees, devouring insects and fruits, and they may even catch flying insects. Today we’re thankful for this bright yellow creature. Let’s look at a photo of this species.

The Indian golden oriole lays its eggs between early May and late June. Birds in the south lay their eggs sooner than birds in the north.

They bring cobwebs, leaves, bark, stems, and other debris to the brink. The female will next construct a cup-shaped nest in which to lay her eggs.

Under the fork, the nest hangs like a hammock. The nest’s body is comprised of several materials.

These birds are not uncommon. They have a steady population and may be spotted in their native habitat on a regular basis.

The Indian golden oriole’s vivid yellow hue makes the species appealing.

Despite their attractiveness, experts advise against keeping them as pets. Keep in mind that they are partially migratory birds. There is no stated reason why they should not be confined. However, it’s probable that they don’t fare well in captivity. They might not be uncommon or endangered. However, it is preferable to let these birds soar freely and appreciate the beauty they provide to nature.
