Check local birders, will you, DENR-NCR?
Because you said,
Among the rare bird species found was the Black Naped Oriole (Oriolus chinensis), which can be clearly defined by its bright yellow mantle and black stripe from the eyes to the back of the head.
Duuuude. The black-naped oriole is a common urban bird. You only have to go to UP Diliman and La Mesa Ecopark to see quite a lot of these birds, usually hanging out in twos or threes. They’re even in my neighborhood, typically singing in the early morning and swooping around all day. 1
- I’m not a super birder and I don’t want to be smug. But I feel like this is something basic that DENR-NCR should at least know about. ↩
