Wetar Figbird

Sphecotheres hypoleucus Finsch, 1898

The Wetar Figbird (Sphecotheres hypoleucus) is a species of bird in the Oriolidae family. It is endemic to forest, woodland and scrub on the Indonesian island of Wetar. It remains very poorly known, but is possibly threatened by habitat loss, resulting in it being listed as Near Threatened by BirdLife International and IUCN. It resembles the far better known Australasian Figbird, but is smaller and the male has entirely white underparts. It has been considered a subspecies of S. viridis, but today all major authorities consider the two as separate species. Source: Wikipedia
