Excellent video of this Maroon Oriole Renu & Alok, and a real bonus getting the Black-naped Woodpecker. Tfs Both.
Two awesome species! The maroon oriole is certainly a first for me. Maroon birds are not seen in my part of the world (lol). A darling black-naked woodpecker too. Exceptional Renu & Alok! TFS!
