Oriole/Oriolus[edit]

Do 'Oriole' and 'Oriolus' redirect to the same talk page because they are so similar? I would have thought since one is a bird and the other a genus they shouldn't be merged. If they merit different pages, then surely?... Geno-Supremo (talk) 10:04, 12 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

they do deserve separate pages, that they don't was an error due to earlier moving. Fixed. Sabine's Sunbird talk 19:31, 12 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
cool/cheers - I'll move copy the below oriole related stuff to the right page. Geno-Supremo (talk) 20:55, 13 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Golden Oriole Group, UK[edit]

There is a body called the GOLDEN ORIOLE GROUP in the UK that monitors and studies the species where it breeds in small numbers. more onfo at www.goldenoriolegroup.org but the website is being updated soon so maybe out of date when you view as at 16.3.04

New World oriole[edit]

I'm not sure what the exact phrasing is, but shouldn't we put a direct disambig link to New World oriole at the top for those looking for, say, a Baltimore Oriole? Rufous-crowned Sparrow (talk) 03:28, 13 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Even better question- why is the oriole tak page at the Oriolus talk page? Rufous-crowned Sparrow (talk) 03:30, 13 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Methinks the school mascot in Indiana does not refer to the old world Orioles. I have no idea how to move it, however, nor to where -- is it a generic or is it actually a Baltimore? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 134.243.212.23 (talk) 17:32, 24 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Removed story[edit]

I removed the paragraph below as it didn't seem encyclopedic. It had been added in 2009.

"An unidentified oriole was heard on May 14, 1994, at 1,000 meters ASL south of the summit of Camiguin in the Philippines, where the genus was not previously known to occur. It might have been an undescribed taxon, or simply a vagrant of a known species.[1]"
