Yellow Avian Mascot at Work

When we first found the new office after some scouting last December, there was a bird hanging about, chirping its song at the rear window of the place. It was mostly yellow with black markings. Its eyes were red with black pupils. More often than not, it’s been there each morning or afternoon whenever I’m at work.

Any idea what species this critter is?

Perhaps it's admiring its own reflection

  1. Salam Hisham, it does look like a tiong kuning, the kind that likes to eat fruits, especially ripe mangoes and papayas

  2. Vincent and Ishak seemed to have pinned it. A quick check of the interwebs confirmed that it is a Tiong Kuning a.k.a. “Dendang Selayang” a.k.a. “Black-naped Oriole” a.k.a. Oriolus chinensis.

    Thanks to Selena for narrowing it down to the genus in the first place.

    Vincent, I’m reporting you to Daboss for obvious reasons. Heh heh.
