A small yellow-olive bird with a prominent white eyering. Occurs in forests, shrublands, parks, gardens, farmlands, and urban areas. Eats fruit, insects, and takes nectar from the understory to the top of the forest canopy. Frequently travels in vocal and active flocks, moving in swift bouncing flight through the canopy. Song and calls are high-pitched twitters and ‘chwee’s. Native to Asia; introduced to the Hawaiian Islands where it is ubiquitous in wet and dry areas from sea-level to the mountains.
