Description

Description: Yellow-Bellied Waxbills for sale are small finches with a beautiful song that will enhance your aviary.  The Yellow Bellied Waxbill finches are also known as the East African Swee Waxbill or Swee Waxbill (Coccopygia melanotis) and are typically found in uplands of dry shrub land and open forest habitats of Sub-Saharan Africa. This species is a common and tame bird typically seen in small parties, and does not form large flocks. The Swee Waxbill's call is typically considered a soft swee, swee. They can be housed comfortably in a large cage or aviary and mix well with other peaceful species. Swees prefer to stay off the ground and may appreciate having their food & water dishes elevated.  

Geography: Africa; specifically Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sudan, Zaire, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Song / Call: Song is described as somewhat loud, but simplistic. Click to hear the Yellow-Bellied Waxbill

DNA Testing

If there is no gender option listed for a bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without purchasing DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $149 per bird to guarantee preferred gender. DNA testing may add an additional 3-6 plus weeks to estimated delivery time to allow for gender results.
