Masked Finch

Poephila personata


Males and females are nearly identical in appearance. When seen in a group, the male's face mask may extend further back on the top of the head than the female which will have a very narrow band of black next to the beak. The "trouser stripe" behind the legs can also be wider on the males. Beak color can be a richer yellow in males.
