Amandava amandava | red avadavat
Other Names: red munia, strawberry finch
The red avadavat are sometimes called the strawberry finch, due to their red color and white spots (like the seeds on a strawberry). They travel in small flocks feeding on grass seeds in open areas, especially around water sources. They were brought to Hawaiʻi from Southeast Asia in the early 1900s.
