You hear them when walking, you hear them when they are attacking your figs and occasionally you see one flash by in a blur of yellow and black. Golden Orioles (loriot in French) have a very distinctive voice but tend to hide away at the tops of trees.
So it was unusual to see this chap perched on a dead branch in our acacia this morning. The bird stayed just long enough to fire off this shot.
