Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Typical active white-eye, often found in mixed flocks. Note this species’s broad white eyering, as well as its smoky-black forehead and lores (despite name, doesn’t have much of a black cap). A common species in hill and montane forests, up into scrubby, stunted vegetation around and above the treeline. Song is a dry-sounding series of disjointed strophes, usually incorporating a hard “ti-tick”. Gives high-pitched nasal whistles, as well as chittering “chik”s and “chi-chick”s.
