Jacarini - Volatina jacarina

Jacarini - Volatina jacarina
$$70-90 per pair. Male has a lovely 'Tui' sheen - female intricate and beautiful browns.
The Jacarini or Blue Black Grassquit comes from the grasslands of South America.
Jacarini are not often seen in New Zealand aviaries, partly because they tend to be
quite secretive, hiding in any shrubbery - they like a well planted aviary. Feed requirements: good quality finch mix with the addition of plenty of live food. Jacarini must have a good supply of small mealworms or maggots to breed successfully.
