The black-naped oriole is a bird of many songs. You probably heard its songs and calls many times in urban Singapore without realising origin. Once you can identify its voice, you can look up in the tree and you should see it. It's not hard because it's bright yellow plumage is a dead give-away. It does not care about camouflaging and it is not a shy bird.
