Inside for the winter

Tri-coloured parrot finch

Many of our finches have been brought inside for a few months, protecting these small birds from the vagaries of a British winter. During the catch up we take the opportunity to give each bird a health check, trim any over grown nails and replace any lost rings.

Also, Australian species such as star finches and chestnut-breasted finches often attempt to breed during our winter months and this is very unlikely to be succesful if they are left outside.
