Courting time for the Red Browed Finches

Love is in the Air!

Red browed finches are commonly seen throughout Glenrock and along the east coast of Australia.

They are highly sociable and usually seen in flocks. They feed mainly on grass seeds, but are also the only finch species known to forage both on the ground and in tree canopies.

Named after their prominent bright red brow, rump and beak, their bodies are otherwise green and grey.

During breeding season, the males are often observed offering grass stems to a prospective female.
