Australasian Yellow Orioles or Green Orioles, Oriolus flavocinctus
The Yellow Oriole or Green Oriole (Oriolus flavocinctus) should not be confused with the South American Yellow Oriole.
Distribution / Range
They are common in suitable habitat:, such as rainforests, mangroves, thickets along watercourses, swamps, and lush gardens.
They are typically seen alone or in pairs, although may form small flocks in the non-breeding season.
Their yellow-green plumage blends with the foliage and they are often located by their bubbling musical calls.
Breeding / Nesting
The breeding season stretches from October to March (the wet season). They construct a neat, deep cup using from strips of bark and vines. The nest is lined with rootlets, and slung between leafy branches, usually 5 to 15 metres up. The average clutch consists of 2 eggs.
Diet / Feeding
Yellow Orioles forage slowly and methodically through the mid and upper strata of dense forests, taking fruit in the main.
