|Hello Bubbles & Pebbles...
Punkin curtsies to all...
I just want to THANK YOU for all the wonderful things you have given to me...First for all the votes for the poor homeless birds. Second for all the joy you have given this little finch and her flock...nothing is better than friends both old and new. And lastly, for the votes. You all have been so generous.
Now Everybirdie wants to know what we're gonna do this Thurs....we don't know. Nope not at all. We're real happy to be able to spend time with our family and skin sis if they come over.
Now all I need is at least 100 more votes to get me into the castle and a whole bunch of birdies to share it with.
Oh and since we are here and not much is happening I will do as promised...tell you about us little finches. And since I'm an Orange Weaver guess what I'm starting with.....Origin
Area of distribution
Across northern Africa, from Senegal to Ethiopia and Tanzania, and south to Angola and South Africa.
Aggressive while breeding.
When in color ("nuptial plumage"--which occurs seasonally), the male appears as follows: black beak, the top of the head and area around the eyes are black, the abdomen is black, the wings are brown, and the rest of the bird (chin, throat, chest, nape of the neck, back, undertail, and upper tail coverts) are orange to red in color.
When out of color ("eclipse plumage"), he appears similar to the hen: sparrow-like coloration with horn-colored beak, tawny brown body color with dark streaks to the feathers, cream belly.
The cocks seasonally enter a more colorful black-and-orange nuptial plumage which the hens do not sport.
