Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Bright yellowish white-eye with a disjunct island range; found from southwestern Borneo to southern Papua. There is slight variation within its wide range; lores dark in most of range but yellowish on Tukangbesi Island off southwest Sulawesi. Compare carefully with other local white-eyes. Favors open coastal forest, forest edge, scrubby areas, gardens, plantations, and towns; can be abundant on small islands. Song is a jumbled series of high-pitched notes; it is a common sound during early mornings and late evenings on islands. Calls include sharp descending cheeps and sparrow-like tweets.
