The diamond finch belongs to the family of finches or wax-billed weavers. Inhabits a variety of forest types including eucalyptus forests, scrub woodlands, grassland and croplands in southern and eastern Australia. The bird spends a lot of time on the ground in search of seeds and insects. Nests are built independently. Both partners bring nesting material, but only the female weaves it into the nest. For the construction of the frame of the nest, birds use various fibers of plant origin and dry blades of grass, feathers are used for lining the tray. Sometimes a diamond finch nests near human buildings. It settles in small colonies, up to 10 - 12 nests on one tree. The female lays 4 - 6 eggs, both partners incubate the clutch for 14 days. Chicks leave the nest approximately 21 days after hatching, after another three weeks the chicks become independent. Both parents feed the chicks. Typically, diamond finches live from 5 to 7 years.
Feeding diamond finches in captivity is not very difficult, you just need not to overfeed the birds and prevent them from obesity, to which this type of finches is very predisposed. The basis of the feed is cereal mixtures containing seeds of various types of millet, canary seed, etc. The diet should regularly contain sprouted grains of various cereals, herbs, vegetables and fruits. Mineral feeding should be kept in the cage at all times. During the period of feeding the chicks, it is necessary to give a mixture based on boiled chicken eggs. For the maintenance and cultivation of diamond finches, a spacious cage 1 m long, about 50 cm wide and about 50 cm high is needed. But they still feel better in more spacious enclosures. For breeding diamond finches, nesting shelters such as cubic boxes are used (edge ​​height 12 cm). A slot 3 cm wide is made in the front wall. Nesting material is hay, fibers, plant fluff, feathers. Sometimes, if the birds are kept in an open-air cage, where there are branches or bushes, they themselves build rather large spherical nests with a notch in the side. But more often they are still content with nest boxes. Often there are pairs of diamond finches whose parental instinct is muted. This is due to the fact that many amateurs, not wanting to risk the brood of their valuable birds, immediately after the clutch is finished, lay the eggs of the diamond finches under the Japanese ones, which are more likely to feed the brood than the diamond ones. Such actions are justified if, in fact, we are talking about rare species, with the reproduction of which many problems are associated (from equipping the necessary premises to the selection of appropriate feed). For some amateurs, diamond finches are successfully fed by one or two broods themselves (no more).On the other hand, chicks raised under their parents also subsequently show parental instinct in a normal form, thereby confirming the well-known opinion about the benefits of this particular breeding method.
Bird lovers appreciate the diamond finch (Stagonopleura guttata) for the beauty of its delicate and contrasting plumage. Male and female are colored equally brightly. The back and wings are light brown, the top of the head and nape are gray, the throat, sides of the head, the middle part of the abdomen and the undertail are white, the "bridle", the chest, sides and tail are black, the upper tail is cherry red. On the sides of the abdomen, on a black background, a lot of white spots are chaotically scattered, for which the birds got their name. The beak is red, the legs are brown. In young birds, the general color is light brown. The upper tail is red, the middle of the abdomen is white, and the beak is black.

These birds are widespread in Eastern Australia, where they inhabit grassy steppes with rare trees and shrubs. Their nests are large, oval in shape, with a large entrance, usually located in dense branches of trees. Sometimes birds occupy large nests of other species. The base of the nest is coiled of flexible grasses, and the tray is made of soft plant fibers and lined with feathers. Sometimes a diamond finch nests near human buildings. She settles in small colonies. There are up to 10-12 nests on one tree.
Individuals of this species were first brought to Europe in the first half of the 19th century, and in 1859 the first offspring were obtained from them. Large consignments of diamond finches were delivered to Europe in the periods 1926-1930 and 1949-1950.

In captivity, these birds must be kept in large cages or aviaries, as they are prone to obesity. They are fed the same way as other weavers. For reproduction, a pair of producers are placed in a separate large cage, joint keeping is possible only in large enclosures, because during this period the birds are aggressive.

The clutch of these finches usually contains 4-6 white eggs. Duration of incubation is 14 days. Young birds leave the nest in 3 weeks, the adult outfit is put on at 4-6 months. Birds should be allowed to breed from the age of one. During one nesting season, no more than 2-3 clutches can be obtained from birds. If the parents do not hatch eggs and refuse to feed the chicks, you can resort to the help of nannies - Japanese finches. The offspring were obtained from crossing a diamond finch with a zebra, Japanese, sharp-tailed grass finch and a ruby ​​astrild.

Colored mutations were also bred - white and with a red spot on the chest.

Standard description:

We make the best reproductions (copies): very detailed, with excellent color reproduction, with maximum similarity to the original, pleasant to the touch and resistant to fading.

To do this, we first scan all original works ourselves on high-precision equipment (rather than take ready-made files from photo banks), and then reproduce them in the giclee technique on thick paper of the highest quality.

Giclee (fr. Giclée - "to spray") is the most perfect method of digital printing of artistic images at the moment: millions of ink drops are sprayed on the surface of the paper, which makes the print as close as possible in quality and uniformity of tone transitions to the original image and allows you to transfer up to 16 million colors shades.

The high-density pigment ink used is resistant to external influences, and their lightfastness exceeds 110 years.

As a base, we use only thick professional acid-free cotton textured paper with a sensitive velvety matte finish for a better ink perception, specially designed for art reproductions.

All reproductions are printed on order in limited edition, production time 1-3 days.
