WHAT DOES SILVER-EYE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

silver-eye

Silvereye

The Silvereye or Wax-eye is a very small omnivorous passerine bird of the south-west pacific. In Australia and New Zealand its common name is sometimes shortened to White-eye, but this name is more commonly used to refer to all members of the genus Zosterops, or the entire family Zosteropidae. In New Zealand, the Silvereye was first recorded in 1832. It arrived in greater numbers in 1856, and it is assumed that a migrating flock was swept eastwards by a storm. As an apparently self-introduced bird it is protected as a native New Zealand species. Its Māori name, Tauhou, means "stranger" or more literally, "new arrival".
