Silvereye
A Silvereye (Zosterops lateralis) perched on a blooming Cestrum species. The Silvereye is a very small passerine bird (~12 cm (4.7 in) in length) native to the Australasia region. Silvereyes are omnivorous but have a particular fondness for fruit. Some orchardists, grape growers, and home gardeners regard them as a pest particularly as, being so small, Silvereyes simply ignore bird nets, popping in and out through the netting at will.Photo credit: Noodle snacks
