Distribution / Range
It is endemic to the islands of Viti Levu, Vanua Levu, Taveuni, Kadavu, and Ovalau in Fiji in the South Pacific Ocean, where it is a common bird of forests.
Where it co-occurs with the closely related Silvereye it is more common in denser forest.
It is a typical small white-eye of the genus Zosterops, similar in appearance to the Silvereye, although the plumage is much yellower, it is chunkier and has a complete eye-ring. The back is olive green and the throat and belly yellow.
Calls / Vocalizations
The call is described as "a high pitched seeu-seeu".
Diet / Feeding
The Fiji White-eye feeds by gleaning insects from shrubs and trees. It will join mixed-species feeding flocks with other Fijian birds, including Silvereyes. It also feeds lower down in the trees than Silvereyes.
