What bird?

Recommended Posts

I got a shot at this little bird last week in a butterfly house in Ontario. I don't know if it is native to N America or it's a tropical species.

The bill doesn't look right for anything N. American -- maybe an Estrildid from Africa?

Society finch...a domesticated finch that is often used as foster parent to Lady Gould, and other rare species of finches in captive flocks.

Thank you. A society finch it is. Common name: Bengalese finch. Scientific name:  Lonchura striata domestica. It is not found in the wild.
