African Yellow White-eye

Zosterops senegalensis

Distinguished from other southern African white-eyes by being bright yellow below and lacking any green tones, this little bird is a common species throughout much of Africa. That said, it is only found in the north eastern reaches of South Africa and is thus, considered a special find within our borders. I was super excited to first record and photograph this striking yellow white-eye in September 2010, while walking along the outskirts of Nyamithi Pan in Ndumo Game Reserve with my wife, Eileen. This species was also a very common sighting in March 2014 at Bonamanzi Game Reserve.
