Notes
(for the bird pictured above)?

Like some of my other Diamonds this fellow was born with very orange tail coverts. This reverts to red, albeit a lighter shade, as the bird matures. The parent hen also has a similarly-orange tail covert.
若いオスです。よく囀りをしています。

General species notes: Disposition
Bold and assertive. Individuals vary in how aggressive they are, giving the species an unpredictable temperament. Diamond Firetails tend to become particularly aggressive while breeding, especially towards closely-related Australian finch species such as zebra finches, owl finches, and shaft-tail finches.

Physical descriptions
Silvery grey head with black lores, white chin and throat, red eye rings, and maroon beak. The back and wings are deep grey-brown, the rump crimson, the tail black. The chest has a black band across it, the flanking is black with white dots, the belly is white, and the legs are dark grey. The juvenile has an olive-gray head, black beak, brown flanks, and white underparts.
