Seram White-eye

Zosterops stalkeri

The Seram white-eye, scientifically known as Zosterops stalkeri, is a diminutive and lively passerine bird belonging to the white-eye family. This species is adorned with a distinctive eye-ring, albeit narrow and interrupted at the front, lending it a unique appearance among its kin.

Identification Tips

Upon observing the Seram white-eye, one will note the black crown and sides of the head, contrasting with the dark bronze upperparts. The rump boasts a striking yellow-bronze hue, while the sides of the breast and flanks are a subtle greyish-white. The bird's undertail-coverts are a vivid orange-yellow, and the thighs are a delicate whitish tone. The uppertail presents as a brownish-black. Both sexes share a similar plumage, but the immatures can be distinguished by a greener, more diffuse throat and a chin with more black intermixed among the feathers.


The Seram white-eye is a bird that thrives in the open woodlands of Seram, Indonesia, where it has adapted to the local environment.


This species is an endemic resident breeder, meaning it is found exclusively on the island of Seram in Indonesia and does not migrate.


The Seram white-eye is known for its active demeanor, flitting about in search of sustenance and engaging with its environment.

Song & Calls

The vocalizations of the Seram white-eye are distinct from those of its relatives, adding to the bird's unique identity within its habitat.

Diet and Feeding

While primarily insectivorous, the Seram white-eye exhibits a diverse palate, partaking in nectar and a variety of fruits as part of its diet.

Conservation status

The IUCN Red List has classified the Seram white-eye as Least Concern, indicating that, at present, there are no immediate threats to its population numbers warranting a higher level of concern.

Clean and easy to use
Really enjoying this app, it's clean and easy to use. I love the ease of being able to add those one-off birds without starting a whole checklist. I also like the social aspect, like the parts of my Facebook I like, without the ads and junk, just birds. Can't wait to see it become more populated.

Really useful
Downloaded to give it a try, everything worked perfectly, recorded my first bird watching walk. Very impressed. Have already recommended to friends!
Terrific App for Birders
Downloaded Birda around the time my interest in birding was sparked, and it has been a terrific app to help me (1) share my experience, (2) document my sightings, and (3) learn more about birds in general. That said, I also believe Birda is a fantastic app for birders of all experience levels. Great community!
We've been waiting for an App like this
Excellent! We've been waiting for an app like this! Thank you! It would be nice if you could assign additional birds to sessions later!
