This Christmas, my husband surprised me with the best present. EVER.
Two words: Erythrura gouldiae
This handsome guy is a Red headed (dilute mutation) Gouldian finch. Look at that colour!
Red headed Gouldians have a fiery reputation, and this one is certainly The Boss.
This lovely lady is a Black headed (normal) female Gouldian finch.
She is absolutely divine.
I also have a couple of cheeky Zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata).
These two girls are totally BFFs.

I am completely in love.
