Binomal Nomeclature

 Oriolus xanthornus Black Hooded Oriole.

You could call this bird,  žluva černokápá or Schwarzkopfpirol or Orientalsk Hættepirol or even  Oropéndola Encapuchada. In Japan I believe the bird would be called   ズグロコウライウグイス
whilst in Russia the name would be  Черноголовая иволга. In China   黑头黄鹂. However in the Scientific literature it is necessary to use the binomial name so that there is no confusion in translation. Check out the full classification on this database of birds.
