Product Description

Identification: The Black Cheek Zebra Finch (Taeniopygia guttata [formerly Poephila guttata]), is a variation of the most common estrildid finch of Central Australia and ranges over most of the continent, avoiding only the cool moist south and some areas of the tropical far north. The Black Cheek Zebra finch can also be found natively in Indonesia and East Timor. This Zebra Finch has been introduced to Puerto Rico, Portugal, Brazil and the United States. Zebra finches are loud and boisterous singers.

Temperament: Zebra finches are arguably the most popular and commonly kept Australian finch species. They are free breeders, undemanding, and easy to care for, and therefore, ideal for beginners. They also come in a wide variety of appealing color mutations. Zebra Finches are perky, active, noisy, pushy, social and can be territorial, especially when breeding.
