Timor Zebra Finch

The Timor Zebra finch is a subspecies of the more popularly kept Australian Zebra Finch
Smaller than even its wild Australia cousins, the Timor Zebra Finch is one of the smallest finches kept in captivity. It averages a tiny 10.4 grams and is quite active. The markings on the Timor as not as "bold" as the Australia species. Most notably the breast bar and throat markings are absent or thinner. The call and song of the Timor is higher in pitch and genetically different than the Australian species as well.
