Notes
(for the bird pictured above)?
General species notes: It is highly desirable in many ways. Its appearance is stunning, especially the male’s, with his blazing red/orange/yellow breast, red eyebrows and neat rows of brown stripes down its sides. No two males are exactly alike. I once heard it poetically put that each waxbill is as different as an African sunset.

Females are a duller version of the male with most of her color contained to the lower abdomen and back. They lack the red eye brows, so even young birds can be sexed visually that way.

Gold-breasted waxbills are considered to be one of the easiest waxbills to breed in captivity and take quickly to domestic life. The base of their diet should be a high-quality dry finch mix, spray millet and (of course) plenty of fresh water for drinking and bathing. Their water dishes should never be deeper than 1 inch due to their extremely tiny size.
