Taiwan Yuhina

Like other yuhinas, it is closely related to the white-eyes and if these were considered a distinct family Zosteropidae, it would be placed there. Otherwise, it would belong together with the white-eyes into the Old World babbler family Timaliidae . The closest living relative of this species appears to be the Black-chinned Yuhina, which occurs on the Asian mainland .

The Taiwan Yuhina is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

Taiwan Yuhina is 13 cm in length with a deep brown chestnut-coloured crest and a black beard stripe descending from its beak. The bird's back, wings and tail are olive brown, and its lower breast is lighter in colour. Agreeing with other typical yuhinas in habitus, its colouration pattern is rather uncommon among the genus (Cibois et al. 2002). More

The call of the Taiwan Yuhina is a sound somewhat like twi-MI-chiu, which resembles the phrase "We MEET you". The Yuhina's diet consists of mainly nectar, berries, flowers and small insects. Taiwan Yuhina may sometimes be observed hanging upside down on cherry trees. These songbirds are particularly fond of the flowers of the Chinese tulip tree and the fruits of trees of the family Elaeagnaceae and the genus Idesia (Salicaceae). Breeding season for the Taiwan Yuhina is from May to June. More

breeding Taiwan Yuhina (Yuhina brunneiceps) in a fragmented forest habitat. Zoological Studies 44(4): xxx-xxx. We used multilevel analyses (individual habitat selection and population structure) to study edge effects on the Taiwan Yuhina (Yuhina brunneiceps), an endemic subtropical species at Meifeng, central Taiwan. The 95% kernel home range area was used to study habitat preferences, and the source-sink threshold was calculated to determine whether this yuhina population is self-sustainable. More
