History [ edit ]

Lady Gouldian Finch is an unusual name for a bird breed but is has sentimental reasons. The name Lady Gouldian was given to these Finches by John Gould in memory of his late wife.

Although very popular in aviaries, due to their bright colors, during the past century, Gouldians have decreased in numbers and are now classified endangered in the wild. Their habitat has been progressively destroyed by fires and human hand. In the wild they stay away from people, but their bright colors makes them an easy prey for hunters.
