Cape white-eye
Appearance
Usually distinguished from African Yellow White-eye by its greyish underparts and green (not yellow) upperparts. However, birds in Mpumalanga have pale green almost yellow backs; here, only the greyish green vent and greenish (not yellow) head differentiates this species from African Yellow White-eye. Lacks the obvious buff sides to the breast and flanks of Orange River White-eye.
Juvenile is duller than adult.
Habitat
Forests, woodland, savanna, exotic plantations and suburban gardens.
Food
This bird feeds mainly on insects but also soft fleshy flowers, nectar, fruit and small grains.
Call
A soft, sweet 'tweee-tuuu-twee-twee', often repeated.
