Zebra Finch

Zebra Finches live in Australia, mainly in open grassland. They are gregarious, and the males will often call - we might think they sound the same, but each male sounds different! The females don't call at all. They eat mainly seeds, and breed whenever water and food is readily available, so our breed almost all year round.They are well adapted to human habitation, so are becoming more common in the wild.

The males are brightly coloured, while females and juveniles are more plain - but still have the distinct "zebra stripes" in their tail feathers.
