Saw a silvereye at the beginning of my observation. It sat on a tree (an unidentified tree, but I will upload photo of this tree in hopes someone will be able to identify it.) I have seen a couple of silvereye's land on this tree before, and even eat the berries. But, the silvereye's only landed then flew away this time.

I saw numerous of these birds sneakily trying to steal some yummy grapes from Lincoln's vineyards. I saw a few actually get stuck in the nets of the grapevines. They also were resting in the neighboring trees and apple orchard.

Aside from the count, I was in the vineyard for about 40 minutes observing a group of 4 Silvereyes who had got into the nets. This was a chance for me to photograph them as they are too quick to photograph when the are free! After I photographed them, I removed them from the bird netting.

Description from Wikipedia

The white-eyes are small passerine birds native to tropical, subtropical and temperate Sub-Saharan Africa, southern and eastern Asia, and Australasia.
