St Helena Waxbill - Estrilda astrild

St Helena Waxbill  - Estrilda astrild
So rare we have no price guide! The St Helena comes from the grasslands of central and southern Africa. The St Helena builds a complicated nest with a cocks nest on top, probably to confuse predators. This used to be a popular finch in New Zealand but now is very difficult to obtain. There are still some fawn mutation birds around but it’s very rare to see the original brown form. The male and female are quite similar and they have quite a strong pair bond.
