A small, rounded, and colorful bird that needs other birds around to thrive. Males are brighter in color than females. Selective breeding to produce more colorful varieties is common. It inhabits areas with dense vegetation and prefers to live on the ground as it can only fly short distances. The diet consists of seeds, bugs, and grass. On average, their life span is 3-6 years in captivity, but they may live up to 13 years, while they can live nearly 1.5 years in the wild.
The number of bird species is considered to be declining. The loss of habitat is the major reason for endangerment. Fires, urbanization, and agricultural expansion contribute to the loss of species. 30% decline in 11 years in the EU population
