Japanese White-Eyes or Mejiros
[Zosterops japonicus] are small
songbirds found throughout the Hawaiian
Islands. Their song, a bell like “tzee” or
“pseet” is often heard by bird lovers.
They are very acrobatic, often hanging
upside down to eat insects or get nectar.

Though imported from Japan to Oahu in
1929 and then the Big Island in 1937,
they are now the most common birds
found throughout the Islands.

In this painting, I have him searching for
insects amongst the multi-colored
blossoms of the Royal Poinciana or
flamboyant tree.
