  • Red-browed Finch

  • Neochmia temporalis
  • The Red-browed Finch is most easily recognised by its bright red eyebrow, rump and beak, on an otherwise green and grey bird. Upperparts are olive green with grey underneath. Both sexes are similar in appearance. Young birds have black bills. Often observed in small flocks, which feed on the grass. They will fly into dense undergrowth when disturbed by a passer-by.
