Black-naped Oriole

Jurong Birdpark, Singapore

Black-naped Orioles breed in Singapore. They build a cup-shaped nest at a fork at the end of a slender branch high in a tree. The nest is made from bark,
small twigs, grass and roots. 2-3 bluish-white eggs with brown spots are laid. They hatch in about 2 weeks.

Black-naped Orioles are not at risk and rank among the top 10 most common residents in Singapore. They have adjusted very well to humans and are found
even in the city. They arrived in Singapore from Indonesia and became established in the 1920's-30's.

For backyard feeders: try Birds-Out-Back.
