Double-barred Finch/Owl Finch

Taeniopygia bichenovii


Tiny birds, feeding on grass seeds.


They got used to me being around, after 30 min :) and I could get really close to take these pictures.

It is so cute! It is a beautiful bird!! And it is very fat! It is so little! We like the color of the beak! The colors of the feathers are funny!
