Description: The plum-headed finch (Neochmia modesta) also known as cherry finch is a common species of estrildid finch found in Australia. It is found in dry savannah and subtropical/tropical (lowland) dry shrubland in Australia. The Plum headed finch prefers an aviary with shrubs and tall growing grasses.

Sexing: The Cherry Finches are easily sexed. The female is similar to the male but lacks the male's black chin spot.

Temperament:  Cherry Finches are non aggressive in a mixed aviary. They are hardy birds who breed well and are happiest in a small aviary or large planted aviary.  

Breeding: The plum-headed finch breeds mainly from September to January in the south and from August to March in the north. The nest is round, laterally compressed chamber of green grass and is built in thick bushes. Four to six pure white eggs are laid. They will breed all year round if conditions are suitable and a compatible pair would be good for a beginner / intermediate level bird-keeper. Can be bred as a colony or one pair can be bred in a large canary style cage.
