I clicked these pictures some days back, and ever since have been waiting for the bird to make another appearance for a chance to get some better shots. But it looks like this Hooded Oriole (That’s what I think it is. Please correct me if I am wrong) has found a different locality to grace with its bright presence. Perhaps the paparazzi being here bothered it.

Finding the persistent paparazzi is not about to give up, the irritated Oriole decides to fly away.
