The Seram Friarbird is the largest and is approximately 78% heavier than the Grey-collared Oriole, which is an almost perfect mimic of it. The friarbirds on Halmahera, Buru and Tanimbar are about 50% larger than the Dusky-brown Oriole and the two races of the Black-eared Oriole, respectively, and the mimicry of these last is close but not perfect.
