Blue-eye, the colonial name of Entomyza cyanotis, sometimes called the Blue-faced Honey Eater. This bird seems to be confined to New South Wales; it is found almost exclusively among the blue-gum trees, and feeds on insects and honey. Head and back of neck black; bare space round the eye rich deep blue; upper surface golden olive, under-surface white. The blue-eye often resorts to the deserted nests of an allied species to deposit its eggs. The cry is loud and monotonous.
