Nature’s Marvels-ORIOLE

I never get bored watching the antics of these vibrant golden yellow birds with black eyestripe that resembles the eye makeup of a woman with kohl eye cosmetic and their alluring black bordered wings. They are named as Orioles ..We can see them forage in trees and hear them sing melodiously echoing through the stillness of the woods.

Their territorial face-off and chases enthuse me. Ripe papayas attracts them to the garden. It’s interesting to see how they clamp on to those fruits carving out the sweet flesh and gorge them with their slender pink beaks.

I just couldn’t resist myself from posting these pictures of one of the loveliest marvels of nature. Two of them I clicked with my camera and the other one I painted.
