Gouldian Finches

Range: Australia

Habitat: Grasslands

Natural Diet: Seed eaters

Diet at Rain Forest: A wide variety of prepared finch diets.

Size: Small, 3 to 4 inches tall

Status in Wild: Almost extinct in the wild.  Loss of habitat coupled with a parasite have driven the wild populations to the brink of extinction.  Captive numbers of birds are estimated in the 10's of thousands as these beautiful birds are kept as pets around the world.
