Description: The Orange Crowned Weaver (Euplectes orix and E. franciscanus) hails from Africa. Other common names are Red Bishop, Grenadier Weaver. Orange Bishop, Orange Bishop Weaver, Orange Weaver. In the wild, the Orange Weaver finch will make it's home in reed beds close to the surface of the water. True to its name, male orange weavers construct complexly woven nests during the breeding season. These birds, like most other finches, are social and enjoy the company of other finches. Males are much more colorful than the females, however, after breeding season is over, the male's plumage returns to that of the female. The transformation is amazing.

Size/Weight: 5.5" 

Temperament: If keeping these birds in a mixed collection, they may be housed with larger, more robust finches such as cut-throats, java sparrows, and other similarly sized weavers. Keep an eye on the birds when they come into nuptial plumage as they may become aggressive at this time. Separate overly aggressive birds from the flock to prevent fighting and injury.

Breeding: In the wild, Orange Weavers are social and enjoy the company of other finches but are aggressive while breeding. As a pet, they are noted to enjoy living along and enjoy bouncing from various perches in a cage setting.

Diet:  Classic Finch Seed,  Millet, Dried Egg Food, Mineral Grit
