This DVD features finch species and subspecies belonging to 27 Australian, 29 African and others, such as the Cardinal from USA, and mannikins from Asia/New Guinea, and parrot finches from Asia/New Guinea, northern Australia and Pacific Islands.
Finches are seen bathing and drinking at remote waterholes. The beautiful Gouldian examples of both the Red-headed and Black-headed variety are pictured with juveniles. Other visual highlights includes the glorious Violet-eared Waxbill search for insects, extraordinary whydahs and weavers at nest and so much more to detail in this brief precise.
Two detailed interviews with well-known breeders—Russell Kingston and Gary Fitt—provide valuable information on aviary set-ups, feeding methods, watering systems and more. Gary shares his method of producing maggots—an essential live food for many finch species.
Peter has again produced high definition film and photographs into a wonderful informative DVD depicting the beauty of the finch families.
Peter has a real passion and talent for still photography and has also captured many parrot and finch species in both their wild habitat and in captivity on high definition DVD. For those who have watched Peter’s other DVDs, this is a definite to add to the collection.
