The ventriloquial oriole (Oriolus consobrinus) is a species of bird in the family Oriolidae.

It is found in Southeast Asia through Borneo and the Philippines. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests where it is threatened by habitat loss.

The ventriloquial oriole was formerly considered to be conspecific with the dark-throated oriole (Oriolus xanthonotus).[1]


Two subspecies are recognized:[1]

  • O. c. consobrinus - Ramsay, RGW, 1880: Originally described as a separate species. Found on Borneo and offlying islets
  • O. c. persuasus - Bangs, 1922: Found in south-western Philippines
