A small songbird with a prominent white eye-ring, a narrow yellow band on the forehead, green upperparts, a yellow rump, and an entirely yellow underside. Small groups roam the upper levels of forest, scrub, and patches of trees on farmland in the lowlands and foothills. Restricted to Buru, where the only other species with a bold white eye-ring is Warbling White-eye. Buru White-eye is distinguished from that species by its entirely yellow underparts, including the belly. Gives a rapidly repeated agitated-sounding chattering call,“tu-tu-tu-tu-tu-tu-tu,” as well as a “chewit” note.
