Silvereyes in South Korea

Yellow, round, tiny, and gregarious—say hello to these silvereyes enjoying cherry blossoms in South Korea. While this family of passerine birds is native to Africa, Australasia, and Asia, several of its species can be found in places like French Polynesia and Hawaii, where they appeared by introduction. Also known as white-eyes or wax-eyes, these birds come in a range of colors and patterns, but they all share that trademark eye ring. They have a sweet tooth for nectar, but they"re not picky eaters, happily feeding on fruits, insects, and berries. Let"s celebrate these beauties for adding a touch of wonder to spring!
