Today's new bird is a species of finch with a widespread range across a variety of habitats in sub-Saharan Africa. Meet the Birdorable African Firefinch!
There are four or five recognized subspecies of African Firefinch. All birds have reddish underparts and olive-brown upperparts, but the intensity of the color and the ratio of red to olive-brown varies among the subspecies. Males sport distinctive white spots on their flanks.
