Training 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 Mike,
If you mean "silut", there's more info here.

With regard to honey, I do not find that it adds any positive value to the bird's performance; perhaps others may feel differently.

Best regards,
Peter

bro its pretty dangerous to bring in these birds to sg from jb.

if detected by customs its really gonna give you a big headache. sometimes even when i'm tempted to bring in birds from sg, i don't dare to. not to mention bringing in birds from jb to sg, which would be even harder at the checkpoint.

however, if you decide to do so, give me a holler, i'd be glad to bring you around.
