White-eyes Bird

In the white-eye family, the Indian white-eye (Zosterops palpebrosus), formerly the Oriental white-eye, is a small passerine bird. On the Indian subcontinent, it is a resident breeder in open forests. In small clusters, they forage, feeding on nectar and small insects.

The characteristic white eye-ring and overall yellowish upperparts are readily recognized. Previously, the distribution stretched eastward to Southeast Asia, Indonesia and Malaysia, but the English name was changed when the taxa in these areas were assigned to other species.

The species can be found in a wide variety of ecosystems, from desert to humid forests. They often occur in mangrove regions, such as the area of Karachi. They can lead a more insectivorous life on and on islands. Just in the drier desert areas of western India are they very unusual.
