The Eurasian Golden Oriole is a pretty species in the oriole family that lives across a wide range in parts of Europe, Asia, and Africa. During breeding season they are usually found in forest-type habitat, including developed sites like parks, orchards, and plantations. These birds are migratory, spending the winter across parts of Africa.
Male Eurasian Golden Orioles have a striking plumage of golden yellow and black. Females and juvenile birds have a duller plumage of yellow-green contrasting with olive-brown. Their song is a melodious yodel that finishes on a descending hollow note.
Eurasian Golden Orioles feed mainly on insects and fruit. They may also take small mammals like mice as prey.
