Standard Finches

Zebra Finches

These Australian finches average about 4 inches, with grey heads and backs, dark wings and a barred tail with black and white. Both sexes also have brown eyes, black teardrops below the mid–eye, white bellies and orange legs. Males have chestnut cheek patches, black and white zebra stripes on the chin and neck and upper chests have a solid black band meeting the belly. The male also has chestnut flanks with many white spots and a red–orange beak.

Society Finches

These beautiful four-inch singing birds are usually chocolate with a two–toned beak. Feathers directly surrounding the beak and throat are nearly black but quickly blend to a deep chocolate colored brown, while the chest and belly areas are covered in a scallop design of off white and chocolate. Many color mutations exist in this bird, the most common being a mottled pied, where white feathers are randomly strewn throughout the normal coloring of the bird.

Green Singer

This bird is a resident breeder in Africa, south of the Sahara Desert. Its habitat is open woodland and cultivation. It nests in trees, laying three or four eggs in a compact cup nest. The adult male has a green back and brown wings and tail. The underparts and rump are yellow, and the head is yellow with a grey crown and nape and a black malar stripe. The female is similar, but with a weaker head pattern and duller underparts. Juveniles are greyer than the female, especially on the head.

Strawberry Finch

The red avadavat, red munia or strawberry finch (Amandava amandava) is a sparrow–sized bird of the family Estrildidae. It is found in the open fields and grasslands of tropical Asia and is popular as a cage bird due to the colorful plumage of the males in their breeding season. It breeds in the Indian Subcontinent in the monsoon season.

Shaft–Tail

These beautiful Australian finches have a silver–grey head with rosy–brown bodies and a black mask from beaks to eyes. Averaging 5–6 inches in length, these are hardy birds that get along well with other species of finch. These waxbills are also very comical to watch while singing. They take turns bobbing their heads while the male sings!

Lady Gouldian

These beautiful Australian finches grow to about 5 inches. Three distinct head colors include black, red and yellow (or orange). These colors can be combined with different forms of breast colors including purple, lilac, white and blue. Normally the back color is green. Gouldians were named by naturalist John Gould after his wife which he felt resembled their beauty.

Owl Finch

Striking little birds, full of personality and one of the smallest in the finch world at about 4 inches in length.

Bonds that pairs of owl finches form are very strong and lifelong.

Singing Canary

No other bird has such a beautiful song as these striking members of the finch family, native to the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa. Easy to care for, just sit back, relax and enjoy the antics of these little charmers and their pretty songs as well. Please note, only one canary per aviary is recommended if you would like them to sing.
