Help for identification of bird

Postby Navin » Sat Mar 25, 2006 7:45 am

I live in South East Asia and a baby bird fell out of its nest so we took it in, bought baby bird formula and fed it with a sringe. I looked all over the internet trying to identify it but failed to do so. All i know that it most probably is a type of oriole. However, exactly what type I'm not sure. I would really appreciate it if you could help identify it for me. Here are some pictures:

Navin the bird is a Black Naped Oriole found commonly in Singapore here are a few points you might verify with the bird to find I am right
The Call is described as a fluty four-note whistle what-the-devil! or too-did-yoo or ta-KEE-you; a rising ai-oo-raa; a hissing like fighting tom cats.
In the Juvenile bird the underparts are whitish with blackish streaks on breast; bill grey; lacks nape band which is a badge of age which is found in an adult bird.It is a common bird and is found from India to Philippines.
They are among the 10 most common birds in Singapore.The picture is of an adult bird taken in Botanic Gardens, Singapore.

Yes, you are probably correct. I did some "bird-watching" today, looking out for streaks oy yellow; i did find about 3 birds that match the description of the black naped oriole due to their distinctive black band around their head. 2 of them must be the parents of the bird. Thanks for helping. Oh, yes, for those who want to see more pictures of how an adult would look like, here you go: And, again thanks a lot David.

Thanks for the well wishes. Anyway i guess we can find such birds in Singapore as afterall this is the tropics. However, I certainly hope they do stay in Singapore as due to development, pollution and destruction of habitat may result in the diminishing of species in Singapore. But, at the same time, conservation efforts in Singapore are ensuring that that scenario does not occur.

Hi,

I rescued a black naped oriole baby which fell out of its nest a couple of days ago. Does anyone have any experience raising baby birds? It has already developed feathers but can't fly yet. It looks exactly like the one in Navin's photos, around the same age too. Would appreciate any help given. :)

Navin, the bird looks like a golden oriole. This golden orioles mostly situated at south east Asia. As you can see the jet black colored wings and golden yellow feathers that characterized the orioles.

Hi there!

My friend too rescued 2 birds which fell out of their nest. their nest was too high up the tree, hence he couldn't put them back. He is unsure of the breed of the birds but I reckon they are black naped orioles based on Navin's pictures.
I might be wrong, as I am clueless about the local birds. Any help would be much appreciated! =)

Learning to identify birds is fun and frustrating. A field guide can help you attach a name to most of the birds you see. Field guides are books with pictures and descriptions of the birds. A field guide typically shows birds of just one country or even one region of a country. You will soon learn that many of the birds you see just can't be identified with 100% certainty. But with practice, you should at least be able to narrow your ID down to the correct family.

You are about to discover that birders seem to have given a name to every inch on a bird's body. Do you know where to find a bird's wing bars, primaries, superciliary and malar stripe? These diagrams will help:

Head—Identify the supercilium, orbital ring, and crown...
Body—Identify the nape, flank, and vent...
Wing—Identify the different feathers: primaries, secondaries, and greater coverts...
