The black-naped oriole has a musical song, and so is the bird of joy and music.  With peony and plum blossom, it suggest joy at spring’s arrival.  Orioles also represent the relationship between friends.

‘The trill of an oriole, song of a swallow’ denotes the sweet delicate female voice.   There are videos of orioles singing in the trees or in a cage.

Two orioles with willow trees refers to the poem of the famous Tang dynasty poet Du Fu: two orioles are singing in the willows, a line of egrets is flying in the sky.    (The whole poem).

Here is Virginia Lloyd-Davies painting an oriole.  There is lots of energy  in the ink, and the feet are excellent.
