Euodice cantans | African silverbill


The first record of African silverbills in Hawaiʻi was in the 1970s. Like many of the small seed-eating birds, it can be most easily observed in dry areas and near water sources. They are only 4 ½ inches long with pale brown and light gray. Their bill is a blue-gray. Listen for them in small flocks “tinkling” like little bells.
