Star Finch Species Profile
Traits:  Star finches are social birds that should be kept in a flock setting with other star finches. They are friendly, beautiful birds with a pleasant disposition, which makes them popular as pets. While star finches are not shy around people, they are birds to observe and appreciate.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Star finches are active and need a large cage or aviary that is so they can fly around. If kept in a cage, the bars should be no further apart than 1/4 inch to prevent a star finch from getting stuck. Star finches may need regular nail trim,s as their nails tend to grow quickly. They require a varied diet and plenty of opportunities to bathe, which they love. Because star finches can be sensitive to temperature changes, they should not be kept in a living area that is less than 55 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Expert Advice
"Star finches can have different head and back color mutations. The males do sing and have an entertaining courtship display in which they puff their head feathers and lean forward."
Mandy Currie, Singing Wings Aviary
