Mejiros were introduced from Asia to Hawaii in 1929 to control bugs on Hawaii’s sugar plantations. Mejiros are now common on all of the major Hawaiian Islands.
“Mejiro” translates to “white-eye” in Japanese and refers to the small white feathers around their eyes.
This painting is based on a photograph taken in Japan by Mandy Villa.
