keeping finches may look as easy as house them, feed them, and they will be happy, but the truth is quite far from this. As with may birds finches too have very distinct personalities and traits specific to a bird and even traits specific to a certain subspecies. Have a look at this section with a brief synopsis of each of the finch species and how to care for them. many of these finches occur naturally in the Gold Coast of Australia.
Take care to look at their dietary requirements as not all finches are amenable to just your garden variety wild bird mix obtained at the local pet store.
