Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Lightly streaked brown songbird with starkly pale eyes found in edge habitat and scrubby areas in Taiwan. Chinese Hwamei, which has been introduced in Taiwan, has an unstreaked head, dark eyes, and distinctive bluish lines behind the eyes. Hybridization threatens this species’ survival. An accomplished songster, but unlike the Chinese Hwamei, does not mimic other species.
