A breeding resident. Common and widespread across the Waterberg, less so in the surrounding thorn savanna (72% in, 28% out; recorded in 87% of the Waterberg pentads); occurs in any woodland, singly or in pairs in summer, in small flocks in winter; it is the yellow form of this species that occurs in the Waterberg, closely similar in appearance to the African Yellow White-eye (not found here) from which it is best distinguished by the incomplete white ring encircling the eye. Breeds in summer.
