About Zebra Finch
Very small songbird with short, conical bill. Male has upperparts brownish-gray, grayer on crown; face has white band bordered with black from base of bill to cheeks, which are orange; chin to breast gray or finely barred pale gray and black separated from white belly by black border; flanks chestnut, with large white spots; rump white, tail black, overlapped at base by white-spotted black uppertail coverts; legs orange; bill and eyes orange to red, The female does not have orange cheeks and throat bars.

The Zebra Finch breeding season varies, typically after rain. They build untidy domed nests of twigs, grasses and rootlets lined with plant down, wool, fur and feathers, in low a shrub or tree, fence post or termite mound. They have 4-7 pale blue-white eggs, taken care of by both parents.

Zebra finches are little but form large flocks that can be huge, especially when they gather at watering holes. They drink several times a day, however, they can survive for quite a long period of time without water if they have to.

These birds are tame and easy to approach. The zebra finch is a popular cagebird worldwide.

Zebra finches regularly visit water holes and other places to drink. They drink in a similar manner to pigeons and doves, by dipping their bills in the water and sucking it up.
