Vernacular names


The White-eared Myza or Greater Sulawesi Honeyeater (Myza sarasinorum) is a species of bird in the Meliphagidae family, with only its sharp calls revealing its presence.

It is endemic to the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia . It is regularly observed by specialised birding tours at Lore Lindu National Park in central Sulawesi. Field observers have remarked on its squirrel-like behaviour as it scurries about the branches of moss-laden trees.

Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane, usually between 1700-2800 metres.
