  1. I don’t think I’ve seen any warbling white eye birds in person, but I’ve seen them in art before. They’re such cute little birds!

  2. Love the beautiful pictures of the Warbling White Eye! I have never seen one in person but have seen them in artworks and pictures.

  3. Such a cute little bird. Loved the first video of the bird in the ladies Han getting pet (it raised its head so she could pet its neck). Loved the pictures also.

  4. What an adorable bird. Love the pictures especially with the bird with the blossoms. Loved the video where a woman is holding the bird and petting it-the bird looks so content!

  5. This is a new bird to me! He’s so cute. I love the lime color and that startling white eye.

  6. What a little cutie! Thank you, Caris, for my beautiful bracelet. It just arrived and I love it. It’s so well made. Barb G from Wisconsin.

  7. That is such a pretty little bird. It reminds me of the female of The goldfinch. The male is a striking yellow and black but the female is all Olive greenish.

  8. Wow! The white eyes are so obvious. I lived in Japan for a total of 4 1/2 years but never noticed those birds even though I visited a few places for the cherry blossoms.

  9. Beautiful lime green bird among all those cherry blossoms. I wonder if they nest in those trees waiting for the cherries to come.
