There is an over wintering  Oriole in my local patch in East Killara.
Quite an inquisitive carachter it appears whenever something out of the ordinary cames along, to have a look and then fly off.
There seems to be only one present.

Recently (8/7) there was a juv or female Figbird which was calling very loudly in an angophora in my backyard, the Oriole came down to investigate and the two birds interacted then the figbird flew away when a Pied Currawong appeared on the scene. It was an interesting observation of an intereaction between to displaced birds which are also closely genetically related. Have there been other observations of the two species associating with each other?
