The family of White-eyes has its distribution in Africa, South Asia and Australia to Samoa in the Pacific. Many species are endemic to small islands. The body size of these petite birds is between 10 cm and 14 cm. They have short wings with only nine hand feathers. The beak is slender, the tongue is brush-tipped and can be extended far. The appearance of the different species is often extremely similar. Many species have a conspicuous ring of tiny white feathers around their eyes. They are tree inhabitants and eat insects, fruits and nectar. They pierce fruit with their beak and pull the juice out with their tongue. The nest consists of a hanging bowl on a forked branch. The breeding season is the shortest for birds at 10 days.
