The Black-headed Oriole is an African passerine.
It has a very striking appearance with a bright yellow body, contrasting black head and flesh-coloured beak.
It breeds in much of sub-Saharan Africa from Sudan and Ethiopia in the north to South Africa in the south.
It inhabits dry tropical forests, especially acacia and broad-leaved woodlands, and dense shrubland areas, where it is more often heard than seen despite the brightness of its plumage.
