FAR FROM ASIAN LANDS OF ORIGIN. THEY BRIGHTEN HOMES AND ZOOS
The tiny male Strawberry Finch, natty in red vest with white polka dots, seasonally assumes a drab garb (bird at extreme left, above) resembling, though darker than, the plumage of the female (perched, right wing extended, and flying). The domesticated Bengalee, of uncertain origin, has been bred in three forms—dark brown and white, fawn and white, and pure white. The first two are shown here (center, perched and flying). A native of the Netherlands Indies and the Malay Peninsula, the Java Sparrow (lowest pair, normal and white forms) is a large and hardy breed.

The red avadavat, red munia or strawberry finch (Amandava amandava) is a sparrow-sized bird of the family Estrildidae. It is found in the open fields and grasslands of tropical Asia and is popular as a cage bird due to the colourful plumage of the males in their breeding season. It breeds in the Indian Subcontinent in the monsoon season

The society finch (North America) or Bengalese finch (elsewhere), Lonchura striata domestica or Lonchura domestica, is a popular cage bird not found in the wild.

The Java sparrow (Lonchura oryzivora), also known as Java finch, Java rice sparrow or Java rice bird, is a small passerine bird. This estrildid finch is a resident breeding bird in Java, Bali and Bawean in Indonesia. It is a popular cage bird, and has been introduced in a large number of other countries.
