Another photo from the rainforest the beautiful tiny Red-browed Finch…
The Red-browed Finch Neochmia temporalis is an estrildid finch that inhabits the east coast of Australia. This species has also been introduced to French Polynesia for breeding. It is commonly found in temperate forest and dry savanna habitats. It may also be found in dry forest and mangrove habitats in tropical region.
The species is distinguished by the bright red stripe above the eye, and bright red rump. The rest of the body is grey, with olive wing coverts and collar. Juveniles do not have red brow marks, and lack olive colouration on the collar and wing coverts. The adults are 11–12 cm long.
