The Crimson Finch is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The Crimson Finch, Neochmia phaeton, is a common species of estrildid finch found in Australia, Indonesia & Papua New Guinea. It has an estimated global extent of occurrence of 100,000- 1,000,000 km². It is commonly found in moist savanna, and subtropical/ tropical (lowland) moist shrubland. The status of the species is evaluated as Least Concern. The Crimson finch (also known as the Blood Finch) has two distinct races, the Black-bellied and the White-bellied. More

The crimson finch is a medium-sized grass finch. The nominate race is common in north Australia’s tropical savannahs while the white-bellied race is endangered in Australia, and also occurs in Papua New Guinea. The species depends on two distinct habitat types: the riparian zone where they nest and the adjoining savannah where they forage on grass seeds. The species is sedentary, pairing up during the breeding season (roughly Dec–May), and then forming flocks in the dry season. More

Crimson Finches have always been one of the rarer kept Australian finches, even more so, since the end of wild-trapped birds. They have a bad reputation for being aggressive, and the fact that they are reasonably expensive, could be a couple of reasons that they are not commonly kept. Description There are two types of Crimson Finches, the more common black bellied and much less kept and expensive white bellied race. More

male Crimson finch is mostly crimson in colour where the female Crimson finch has light brown plumage with crimson face, tail and primary feathers. The male crimson finch is very territorial and will attack any other red coloured finch that enters his territory. Lucky enough we have a large aviary which allows all of our birds enough room for their own personal space. More

white-bellied crimson finch, which also occurs in New Guinea, was found at Iron Range and Aurukun early in the 20th century. By the end of the century, it appeared to be confined to two small populations on the east and west coasts of the Cape York Peninsula. The star finch was once also widespread. Until recently a common species round the Gulf of Carpentaria, it is now confined to the same two areas as the crimson finch. More

The brilliantly colored Crimson Finch is one of these. His dazzling red color makes a startling contrast against the vivid blue skies above the central Queensland coast and the far north of Australia where he prefers to spend his life along the wet watercourses. Though he is usually found near surface water, he rarely drinks it. Instead, he quenches his thirst by helping himself to the dew from leaves or blades of grass. More
