Artist's Description

visited Dundee Wildlife park, at Murray Bridge, S.A. and found these finch in the bird avairy they have such brilliant colors, so beautiful
Gouldian finches are one of Australia’s most beautiful birds. In the wild they are found in the tropical northern part of Australia.Their habitat is tropical savanna woodland where there are open plains with tall trees, near mangroves and water. The birds apparently migrate south when it is the rainy season at the ‘top end’ of Australia, returning in the dry season.

Gouldian Finches are very social birds and are often found in large flocks. Pairs may even share hollows in the same tree when they are nesting. They are also known as Lady Gouldian, Rainbow finch or simply Gould.

The birds are about 130-140mm long. There are three different color variations in Gouldian Finches: the red-headed, the black-headed, and the yellow-headed. This is because the color variations are on their heads and not on their bodies. People used to think they were three different kinds of finches, but now it is known that they are just color variations of the one kind of finch.
