The Double-barred Finch (Taeniopygia bichenovii) is a social and busy little bird, bustling around in family parties feeding on seeds — mostly grass seeds on the ground, but like others lately joining in the feast of Casuarina seeds on the Nightcliff Promenade. The Double-bar is widespread and common from the Kimberleys across Northern Australia and as far south on the east coast as the Victorian border.
