DESCRIPTION OF BIRD:
The beak of the female is usually more tapered than the male’s. The male dances and sings a barely audible
purring call during the spring and summer. Grasses and moss are used for nesting material.
This bird is native to Africa and some islands in the Gulf of Guinea.
WHEN IS THE BIRD IN COLOR:
They are in color all of the time.
They don’t breed easily but if they do, they'll nest in the nest provided or make their own and lay 4-6 eggs which hatch
in 12-13 days.
They live in groups and eat seeds, greens, insects, and soft egg foods. They are friendly and lively and males will
often attack other birds during mating.
