Chiku fruit for 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 all,

Has anyone tried feeding chiku to their mata putehs?

Did your puteh like it?

Will buy some to try next time I visit the fruit stall. Anyway mine does not seem to like starfruit too much. So far apple, pear, orange seems to be well received. Trying mango today & kiwi fruit tomorrow. :D

Seems like my Puteh have a better diet than me :lol: hahahaha

Regards.

Didn't try mango yet. Bananas seems to go well. Surprisingly green apple seems delicious to my Puteh.

Here he is being entertained by a cascading fountain. On the right hand side of the fountain is a baby female Shama. Dare not bring him to the bathroom lest I am carted away in a straight jacket hahahaha! Maybe later........

Softbillsaviary,

From postings I found in pets.com.sg, Vietnam seems to be a haven for mata puteh enthusiasts. Hope you didn't forget to bring your camera :D

Anyway, hope your trip there is fruitful and pleasant.

Regards.
