Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, sharp-billed, warbler-like bird. Note yellow underparts and bold white spectacles around the eyes. Shows geographical variation in the darkness of the back and the brightness of the yellow underparts, but all populations are brighter below than most other white-eyes. Found in forest, scrub, gardens, moist woodland, and plantations. Usually found in hyperactive flocks that can contain dozens of individuals. Often joins mixed flocks of other small birds. Most common call is a high-pitched, rising rattle. Song is a quiet, chatty sequence of “chew” notes.
