While people may think this bird is not colorful (Hey green is a color!), these birds can have a delightful personality. Many years ago, I did a consultation with a white-eye who had an extensive vocabulary and loved to sit on his caregiver’s shoulder and whisper sweet-nothings into her ear. It took me about a half an hour to teach him to do a somersault in my hand.
