Black-naped Orioles A small corner of an illustration done for a stamp proposal, a long time ago. The theme was " Bird found in Singapore". Had a hell of time drawing those feathers on the wing . ha
I had a really close encounter with the yellow Black-naped Oriole today. It flown away before I could take a pix of it. =) This was the first time I have seen it so up close. Beautiful bright bird, the size of a Myna. They are really hard to be missed.
There are a pair of "resident" Oriole at my neighbourhood. It always a joy to see them flying from tree to tree. But as always, they are too fast and too far to be captured on cam.
