Indian White-eye [incl. williamsoni, auriventer, erwini, buxtoni, melanurus, unicus]

Zosterops palpebrosus [incl. williamsoni, auriventer, erwini, buxtoni, melanurus, unicus] (= Zosterops palpebrosus) (Temminck, CJ 1824)

The Indian white-eye, formerly the Oriental white-eye, is a small passerine bird in the white-eye family. It is a resident breeder in open woodland on the Indian subcontinent. They forage in small groups, feeding on nectar and small insects. They are easily identified by the distinctive white eye-ring and overall yellowish upperparts. The range previously extended eastwards to Southeast Asia, Indonesia and Malaysia but when the taxa in these regions were assigned to other species, the English name was changed.

Geographic range:

  • Zosterops palpebrosus palpebrosus: central and eastern Himalayas east to southern China (Sichuan, Yunnan) and Myanmar; isolated populations on Mahawt Island, Oman, and in southern Iran have been assigned to nominate palpebralis, although this requires confirmation
  • Zosterops palpebrosus occidentis: northeastern Afghanistan east to western Himalayas, and northern and central India
  • Zosterops palpebrosus siamensis: southern Myanmar east through Indochina
  • Zosterops palpebrosus egregius: Sri Lanka
  • Zosterops palpebrosus nilgiriensis: western India (Western Ghats); most populations elsewhere in southern peninsular India are more or less similar
  • Zosterops palpebrosus salimalii: SE India (se Hyderabad)
  • Zosterops palpebrosus nicobaricus: Andaman and Nicobar islands
  • Zosterops melanurus melanurus: Mts. of central and e Java and Bali
  • Zosterops melanurus buxtoni: western Java; a population on Sumatra also has been assigned to buxtoni, but the identification of Sumatran birds as buxtoni has been questioned
  • Zosterops auriventer auriventer: poorly known; documented only from southeastern Myanmar
  • Zosterops simplex williamsoni: southern Thailand and east coast of northern and central Thai-Malay Peninsula
  • Zosterops simplex erwini: coastal forests of the western and southeastern Thai-Malay Peninsula, of Sumatra, the Riau Islands, Bangka, and the Natuna Islands; population of coastal western Borneo provisionally assigned here, but possibly a distinct taxon
  • Zosterops citrinella unicus: W Lesser Sundas (Sumbawa and Flores)
