Black Headed Oriole on Birding Planet

The Story:

South Africa has four types of Orioles, but only this one has a black head.

The head, throat and breast are all black. It has an olive-green tail and an orange beak. I filmed this bird at two different locations; in the video the first Oriole (close-up) was filmed in East London, while the second was filmed along the Wild Coast of South Africa. It generally lives in mature woodland and forests.
