Parrot Finch, Blue-faced
or Tri-colored Parrot-finch
Sometimes mis-named the Tri-colored Parrot-finch, the Blue-faced Parrot-finch (Erythrura trichroa), is widespread throughout Micronesia, Sulawesi and New Guinea. They are probably the easiest Parrot-finch to breed and will settle down well in cages, usually raising their own young without difficulty.
A varied seed diet of mixed millets, canary seed, and grass seeds will keep these birds in good health. When raising chicks they appreciate egg food and insects. Like all the other Parrot-finches, they love to bathe.
