{Trupial or Orange Breasted Oriole - National Bird of Curaçao}

While staying at the heavenly Hyatt Regency Hotel (click it) in Curaçao on the Santa Barbara Plantation, we together did stroll around in the beautiful tropical gardens. One day, along the beach of the Hyatt Regency, we did view the Trupial or Orange breasted Oriole, National Bird of Curaçao ←(click it). One of the Hyatt staff members was actually feeding them fruits as to lure them out of their hiding. Also the Iguanas did come out from underneath the rocks. I was however more interested in the Trupial so I stayed behind with my camera and did get some shots of this beautiful bird. 
I had to laugh at the way this Trupial is holding its 'prey' with one foot!
Those colors are incredible, as is the marking around the eye...
Trupial or Orange Breasted Oriole is a proud National Bird of Curaçao!←click it.
Holding on to the chunk of water melon...
Holding a chunk in its beak...
Great pose for more eye and back detail...
Another one perched on top of the rocks where also the Iguana lizards hide.
Zooming in and trying to keep up with those fast moving birds was tough but this still shows its incredible coloring. Look at the eye 'shadow'...
That was my great encounter with the Curaçao Trupial!
As a child I had the 'Wielewaal', Dutch for Oriole, in one of my most prized books that I got from saving Rama, margarine receipts. This very page I had forever on my retina as one of my most favorite birds!
The title of the book: Zo leeft de Hoge Veluwe
So lives the High Veluwe, a special natural park in The Netherlands.
I've passed this book on to my brother Piet Van den Munckhof, who is a Biologist and writer of several nature books. Hope he still has it!
1960 and published by RAMA (margarine company)
Written by A.B. Wigman and illustrated by Frida Holleman and Rien Poortvliet

Quite a highlight for viewing this Trupial!

  27. Beautiful bird! Watching wild birds is so much fun. Before we had children, my husband and I went bird watching almost every weekend in spring and fall. I hope when the kids are older, we can do it all together again.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  28. Dear Mariette,

    Such a striking bird—he almost doesn't appear real! I adore his cold coloring, and the way his eyes have the beautiful blue to frame... as for his 'prey' I love that you caught this moment!

    Wishing you the loveliest weekend…
