Sangihe White-eye (Zosterops nehrkorni)

The Sangihe White-eye (Zosterops nehrkorni) is a species of bird in the white-eye family.

It was formerly considered conspecific with Black-crowned White-eye (Zosterops atrifrons) , but work by Pamela C. Rasmussen and her colleagues showed that it is a separate species. The same research also confirmed the specific status of the Seram White-eye, Zosterops stalkeri.


Distribution

It is endemic to Sangihe, Indonesia.

This bird species inhabits subtropical or tropical moist montanes. It is threatened by habitat destruction.
