The Red-headed Finch (Amadina erythrocephala), also known as Aberdeen Finch, Paradise Finch or Red Headed Weaver - is endemic to Africa, where it is found in Kalahari Desert, Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
Males have vibrant red heads and heavily barred chests. The hen is easily distinguished as her plumage is more plain and above all, she lacks the red head of the male.
They average 12.5 cm or 5 inches in length.
Breeding / Nesting
The average clutch size consists of 3 to 6 eggs which are incubated for 12 to 13 days.
