Oriole at banana leaf

Black-naped oriole -Dendang Selayang/Kunyit Besar
(Oriolus chinensis)

This pair was searching for food - the larva from that rolled banana leaf. She hang by that leaf and tried to pull it over, but unsuccessful. That 'banana rolled' was too tough for her.

This image was taken earlier (10/1/2008), shows the oriole successfully pulled it and in the process of extracting the larvae.
