The Zebra Finch, Taeniopygia guttata (formerly Poephila guttata), is the most common and familiar estrildid finch of Central Australia and ranges over most of the continent, avoiding only the cool moist south and the tropical far north. It also can be found natively in Indonesia and East Timor. The bird has been introduced to Puerto Rico, Portugal, Brazil and the United States.
The ground-dwelling Zebra Finch grows to a size of about 10 centimetres (3.9 in) long and usually eats grass seeds and spray millet. This species' vocalizations consist mostly of chattering trills and calls.

One of the birds that is popular over her with caged bird enthusiastsSad

I have to admit to keeping and breeding Budgies, many , many years ago
At least I had them in heated quarters and as large an out door flight that was possible to build

I used to breed these (well, I kept them in a very large outdoor aviary, and they bred by themselves), as a child growing up in south Africa. Lovely little birds GrinGrin
