The Oriental White-Eye Pictures and Detail (Zosterops palpebrosus)


Today, I will talk about beautiful and tiny bird with White circle around the eye i.e. Oriental White-Eye. These were the first tiny bird whom pictures, I took. Before that I had no idea that such small tiny birds do exist and they can be so beautiful. 

The Oriental White-Eye is a passerine bird from Asia. We can find more than 5000 species of passerine birds. I was lucky to come across these birds and when a small group of them was venturing the open woodland behind my home.

Oriental White-eye got its name because of visible white circle around its eyes. The scientific name of this bird is (Zosterops palpebrosus). These birds, mainly survive on nectar and small insects.

These beautiful tiny birds are of very small size around 8 cm long. When you see at these birds, then you come to know that how amazing is our nature. This bird can be recognized by upper olive part, white ring around the eye and light grey belly.

The good news is that this bird is wide-spread and we can find few subspecies of bird also.

Oriental White-eye birds are very sociable in nature and therefore, we always find them in groups.

It is not easy to capture pictures of these tiny birds because they move very fast from one place to place and hardly remain stable at a single place.

As a bird photographer, Oriental White-eye give you a challenge and you enjoy it. I like these birds very much because I see the miracle of nature in them.
