Blue-Faced Parrot Finch

About the Blue-Faced Parrot Finch

The Blue-faced Parrotfinch is a species of estrildid finch mostly found in north-eatern Australia. They live in open grassland, tropical areas, mountain woods, forest edge, and eucalypt forest clearings - usually preferring dense growth adjacent to mangroves & rainforest.

Blue-faced parrot finches live in large flocks of 20-30 birds outside of the breeding season, but pair off for the mating season. These finches forage on the ground as well as among grass and low bushes, eating grass seeds, bamboo seeds, fig seeds, small berries, and termites.
