Eurasian Golden Orioles, Oriolus oriolus, coloured pencils, copyright Paula Kuitenbrouwer
I’ve seen Golden Orioles in Korea, Macedonia and Italy. I’ve heard them in the Netherlands, but never saw them there.
It was a great pleasure to draw Golden Orioles. I chose two males, because of their bright yellow plumage, and one female in the background. The female orioles are more green with little yellow, and a white speckled chest. They are perfectly camouflaged in the summer. The males are difficult to spot in the green trees too, however, you can’t miss them when they fly from tree to tree.
Two males and one female in a drawing make a wonderful composition, in nature it means competition.
