Zosterops gibbsi

The Vanikoro White-eye differs from its geographically closest congener, the Santa Cruz White-eye , by several features including a much longer bill and different eye-ring and leg colouring.

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