About the Blue-faced Parrotfinch

Also known as: Tri-colored Parrotfinch, Blue-headed Parrot Finch, Green-backed Finch, Blue-faced Finch

The Blue-faced Parrotfinch is a colorful species of finch found in parts of Australia, east Asia and Southeast Asia.

Blue-faced Parrotfinches are also known as Tri-colored Parrotfinches. They have deep blue faces, green bodies, and red tail feathers. Females have similar coloration but the blue face feathers aren't as extensive as in males.

Because of their beauty, lovely song, and willingness to breed in captivity, Blue-faced Parrotfinches are popular aviary and pet birds. They may live up to 7 years in captivity. In the wild, the stable population has a conservation status of Least Concern.
