Black-headed White-eye

Zosterops hypoxanthus Salvadori, 1881

The Bismarck White-eye or Black-headed White-eye (Zosterops hypoxanthus) is a species of bird in the Zosteropidae family. It is endemic to the Bismarck Archipelago in Papua New Guinea, where is occurs in New Britain, New Ireland and a number of smaller islands. It is sometimes considered to be the same species as the Black-fronted White-eye of the mainland of New Guinea. The species is found in forests, forest edges, secondary forest, gardens and plantations, generally in hill and mountain areas and more rarely down to sea level. Source: Wikipedia
