Oriole and the African Black-headed Oriole are partially dependent on miombo (Brachystegia) woodlands, which are vanishing fast. As a consequence, some maps depicting the ranges of oriolids may present an overly optimistic impression, and the true current range may be much more constricted than indicated. For example, it is well known that the Slender-billed Oriole is almost extinct in some areas of its Chinese range owing to habitat destruction, hunting, and trapping for the cagebird trade and taxidermy.
