  • The Silvereye is a small bird with a conspicuous ring of white feathers around the eye, and belongs to a group of birds known as white-eyes. The Silvereye shows interesting plumage variations across its range. The grey back and olive-green head and wings are found in birds through the east; Tasmanian birds have grey throats, chestnut flanks and yellow on the undertail, and may visit here in the winter.
