Oriental White Eye
Spotted a pair of Oriental White Eye after hearing their soft "zit-like" calls. Thought they were sunbirds until I saw the white ring around its eye. One of the White Eye perched in the middle of this tree. Saw this pair after 5pm in Bukit Jalil area on a weekday in July 2015. Shot this video with my Samsung Mega. Bulky phone and hand-held so it is shaky video shot of this small bird. Wikipedia has more details of Oriental White Eye. Lovely to listen to the calls of the Oriental White Eye in Wikipedia website. The pair that I saw didn't sound like that at all though. It was zit-like chirps that I heard.
