The Marianne white-eye (Zosterops semiflavus) was a bird living on the Seychelles islands. Specifically on Marianne island. Not much is known about this bird. It is closely related to the Karthala white-eye. This family is very recognizable because of their white circles around the eyes – as if they’re wearing glasses -.

Its extinction was caused by agricultural developments on the island and it probably became extinct between 1870 and 1900.
