There's something about the colouring of these lovely finches that reminds me of the colours of the Australian landscape. The smoky blue of distant mountains, the fawn-pink of the earth and the bright red and black of our sudden and terrifying bushfires.
The collective noun for finches is a charm. Indeed, I find finches some of the most charming of all birds. Australia is home to 19 endemic species of finches, but they are separate from the Ploceidae, or true finches.
Long-tailed Finches inhabit open woodland across northern Australia. There are two races of this species. I have depicted race "hecki" with the orange-red bill. (Race 'acuticauda" has a yellow bill)
