raising baby white-eye ! (southern California, US)

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.

raising baby white-eye ! (southern California, US)

Postby Wasabi » Fri Aug 03, 2012 6:17 pm

I am Jenna - in southern California, USA. I am hoping to find some advice - there is not a lot of info I have found on the puteh. (I have been reading on this forum for several days before I joined - I am disppointed the puteh section is not more active.) I found a nestling maybe 4 or 5 days old on 26 July and it is doing very well. I want to be sure I provide a balanced diet but I am not sure about what to feed. I have applesauce and banana right now plus mealworms and crickets. I have other fruit but it still unripe.... I am happy to find you here - I do not know much about any birds! This is Wasabi:
