Artist's Description

The Silvereye is found throughout New Zealand as well as Australia, and some of the southwest Pacific Islands including Fiji. The scientific name is Zosterops lateralis and it also called Wax-eye or White-eye. Its Maori name is Tauhou, which means “little stranger”. The Silvereye was first recorded in New Zealand in 1832, however, arrived in greater numbers in 1856. They feast on large amounts of fruit and nectar, but also enjoy insects. They have a long brush-like tongue, which allows them access to nectar.
For more information on the Silvereye please visit my journal.
