About the African Firefinch
Also known as: Pale-billed Firefinch, Dark Firefinch, Blue-billed Firefinch
Male African Firefinches (like our Birdorable example) can be recognized by their dark red body plumage and olive-brown wings. They also have distinctive white spots on the flanks. Females are similar with a less intense vibrancy. There are four or five recognized subspecies, depending on the taxonomy authority. These differ slightly in coloration (plumage) and range.
