Double-Barred (Owl) Finch - Taeniopygia Bichenovii
The sexes are alike, with a white and owl-like face bordered by a thick black band and another across the lower breast against the otherwise all-white underparts; brown of crown becomes greyer on mantle, and has fine
black and white pattern on wings.
The song is also similar to that of Zebra Finch, but
generally softer and more repetitive.
The usual contact call is a long drawn-out
toy-trumpet-like 'tiaat, tiaat'.
