Zebra Finch Ornament

Zebra Finch Ornament


Native to Australia, Zebra Finches are among the most splendid of any Australian bird with their black and white zebra-like pattern, brown polka-dots and orange beak. Small and plump, they are widespread, preferring drier areas with access to water and occurring sometimes in flocks of hundreds. And even within a flock of hundreds, all the male’s calls (songs) will be different. In fact, scientists study these birds in great detail because the song of a zebra finch is the song of its family, passed down over generations. Each male learns the family’s song from its father and then passes it on to his own son. How’s that for a family business?
