Cherry Finch
or Plumheaded finch
(Aidemosyne modesta)

The Cherry Finch is found in Eastern Australia. Also know as the Plum-headed Finch, they are very peaceful and can be kept with all types of other finches without fear of aggression. The cock has a claret chin spot (or bib) and a plum or cherry colored crown and the female lacks the chin spot and has a thin white line above and to the rear of the eye.

Cherry Finches should be offered a variety of seeds and green food. When breeding they should also get eggfood and livefood.

They nest easily and the normal clutch is 4 to 6 white eggs which hatch in 14 days.
