    The Indian white-eye (Zosterops palpebrosus) is a resident of open woodlands on the Indian subcontinent. They have a predilection for insects, but will also feast on nectar and fruit. When searching for insects, they are known to pollinate plants incidentally. They also bathe in the dew that collects on leaves! So cute! Speaking of cute, they make compact, hammock-shaped nests that they craft out of cobwebs, lichens, and plant fibers! Sounds very cozy. {Zosterops palpebrosus spotted in India by Mohammed Salman} #JungleDragon #Zosteropspalpebrosus #Indianwhiteeye
