Hi, saw this little bird in mid September in Sao Vicente, Cape Verde, on rocks at the sea edge. Is it a Zebra Finch?

  • Although I've never seen one I would say it is. They are native to Australia but are a popular caged bird all over the world so yours is probably an escape. They come in all sorts of mutations so check out this site and you will see what I mean.

    If you scroll down you'll find one that replicates closely your bird.
