Bird Families of the World

Cape White-eye

White-eyes, Yuhinas are birds living the forests of Africa, Asia, and many islands of the Pacific. White-eyes all have a brush-tipped tongue and a fondness for nectar as a supplement to fruits and insects.  Yuhinas are generally crested birds in plumages of greys or brown with a bit of contrasting patterns often around the face. They are highly social.

The family is Zosteropidae

There are 136 species placed in 15 genera

So far I have photographed 14 different species.

To make it easier you can find the genus name combined with the species name (visible when displaying the photograph)
