August 28, 2021 - Warbling White-eye, Japanese White-eye, or Mountain White-eye (Zosterops japonicus)
Found in much of east and parts of Southeast Asia, these white-eyes have also been introduced to the Hawaiian Islands. They eat fruit, insects, and nectar, often traveling in flocks. Breeding between February and December, they build cup-shaped nests from fibers and grasses where females lay three to four eggs. Both parents incubate the eggs and care for the chicks, raising up to three broods in a season.
