Fawn Java Sparrow - Caged Bird Asian Lonchura Oryzivora Bird

Fawn Java Sparrow Caged Bird Asian

Notable traits of the Fawn Java Sparrow Bird: Caged Bird Asian (Lonchura Oryzivora)
Latin Name: Lonchura Oryzivora
Common Name: Fawn Java Sparrow
Description: Java Sparrows are large, full-bodied finches. Measuring over 5-1/2" long. They have impressive beaks that look like they could do some serious damage, however, they are harmless. Males and females are nearly identical in appearance. There are a number of ways to distinguish between the sexes. Like most members of the Lonchura family, the males sing and perform a little dance. The dance is not much to see and many don't think much about the song, but I find it a pleasant, tropical sounding song. Unlike most mannikins, you can actually hear it for some distance. Waiting for them to sing can be a test of patience however.
