Here’s a very small bird with a very large eye ring.
Native to Australia and New Zealand, he’s a migratory bird called a silvereye (Zosterops lateralis). He’s only the size of a kinglet.
This month in the southern hemisphere silvereyes are gathering in flocks because winter is coming. They’ll fly north to warmer climates eating fruit along the way.
Here’s a video of them preening after a bath.
The eye ring is amazing…

One thought on “Eye Ring”
4 eggs at the nest now…I took a screen shot of the snapshot camera as someone just left the nest….
