20 Photos Of Gorgeous Birds Called Strawberry Finches

Birds never cease to amaze us with their different colors, sizes, and features. Some birds have an intricate and striking plumage that can be compared to a fruit or a berry. This is true for a species of bird that, unsurprisingly, is called Strawberry Finches. The small sparrow-sized birds in the Estrildidae family can be easily recognized by their scarlet body paired with tiny white dots.

These birds are known as Red Avadavat or Red Munia. They can be found throughout tropical Asia. They prefer to live in open fields such as meadows, jungle glades, gardens, and meadows, and they thrive in tropical temperatures, so they are prone to losing plumage in colder, drier environments. This is often seen in caged birds. They are about 10.16 centimeters in length (3 to 4 inches).





Male and female birds are different in appearance, the biggest difference being that males have a deep red crown on the back combined with white stripes under the eyes, and the sides of the head and chest are adorned with scarlet. Its tail, wings and on feathers are marked with white spots. Also, the spikes are red.






Bright red birds play an important role in attracting females; On top of that, male strawberry finches have their own mating dance, which begins with the male carrying a grass stalk or feather in his mouth and bowing down with the feathers upright. These birds live in flocks of about 100 other birds of their species and are separated from the group after successful mating to build nests.
