The Isabela oriole (Oriolus isabellae) is an endemic species of the oriole family found on Luzon in the Philippines. The bird was presumed to be extinct for many years until it rediscovery in December 1993 near Diffun, Quirino,[2] and in Mansarong, Baggao, Cagayan in September 1994.[3] Additional sightings were made in 2004 near San Mariano, Isabela.[4]


The Isabela oriole is most closely related to the white-lored oriole, Oriolus albiloris. Both species are closely related to the paraphyletic Philippine oriole, Oriolus steerii.[5]
