Black-headed Oriole

Well, at least one familiar song bird in South Africa - or so I thought... sounds like the Eurasian Golden Oriole (Oriolus oriolus) but it was not it... instead it was  local Black-headed Oriole (Oriolus larvatus). The song is very close to it's European cousin - good reminder that one has to be always careful with these sounds! Bird was singing close to Elephant plains webcam at:
