A male Zebra finch has started to feed in my back garden, is it likely to survive in the wild.

    It could, finches are very adaptable. However, if the weather is extremely cold (freezing) in your area during the winter, it may not.

I walk Craig park in Fullerton area, and was thrilled to see two Pintailed Whydahs, but didn't know what type of bird it was. Today I met a bird watcher and his son who were very informative about the species, and told me there are actually 4 males in the park! They are so beautiful and a pleasure to watch!

    What a nice surprise for you. They are beautiful birds, I use to have a male and he was awesome, especially when his tail was full (they molt the tail off and then regrow it).

Just spotted the pin tailed Whyda in my back yard in La Habra Heights, CA (Southern CA). As soon as I saw it I knew it was not in my backyard bird book! Searched the net and found out what it was. I am guessing it escaped a sanctuary or someone had it as s pet.

    Yeah, not the typical backyard bird in your area huh? Glad you could ID it and hope you can locate its place of escape:)

    We also live in La Habra Heights and have had a male at our feeders off and on for the past year. Two females or juveniles joined him briefly, but have not returned. My wife and I enjoy his arrival and displays, and the many other birds at our feeds are not particularly afraid of his antics.

I have a large aviary with 6 Zebra finches and thee white doves. The flight area is 8'x15' and the connected heated shed is 6'x8'. I added 6 society finches, waited a week to make sure they are healthy and put the cage in the shed, and they will not come out of their cage dispite opening all 3 doors. Should I force them out?

I have a pure white pair of finches. The female laid 3 eggs and began to incubate but stopped incubating after a week. The pair sits outside the nest rather than either of them sitting on the eggs. What is the problem with them? What should I do?

    There's a few reasons why zebra finches won't sit on eggs. The first is because they are 'duds', and the parents will know if they are. Another is if you actually have two females, where one is laying eggs and the other 'acting' male, and in this case the eggs will be infertile. And another reason is simply that some times the parents don’t even know enough to sit on the eggs yet, so they won’t. Usually that happens with the first clutch or two, then they begin to get better. But not always, there are occasions where the parents never get the hang of it, so in that case the eggs have to be incubated by the keeper.

    I have a male and female zebra finch, they laid 5 eggs, they have been good about sitting on them but today they both were out for awhile, is that normal?

We have a pin tailed whydah Male in our garden. He is extremely aggressive towards all the other garden and wild birds. We had such a lot of birds in the garden they have all disappeared since his arrival at the end of December 2013, he chases them all away, what can we do to stop him chasing all the birds away? He is such a nuisance, I actually would love to see the last of him.
