Oriental White-eye

Oriental White-eye Zosterops palpebrosus
for sale as caged bird in Da Lat, Vietnam

    Unfortunately many song birds (and other species for that matter) are routinely captured throughout Southeast Asia, and sold as caged birds. This Oriental White-eye was photographed on the sidewalk in Da Lat; it was the species we saw most frequently for sale, with White-rumped Shama Copsychus malabaricus being popular also.
