I photographed this one — part of a small flock — on the Tunupo Track in the Ruahine Range just over a fortnight ago.
The more usual common name among the bird people is 'silvereye'. If you want to be exact, the scientific name is Zosterops lateralis ssp. lateralis, but that's too much of a mouthful for me. I think I'll stick with 'waxeye'.
