question about young mata puteh.

I observe that many people like to keep this small bird for their beautiful song. Zosterops (Zosterops Palpebrosa) is normally called 'Mata Puteh" (white eye) in this region.

Hi bro,

I have very limited experiance in this species... however, last time when I saw some friend keep it, I think jumping around was their behavior... my 2 cent
