Are you looking to spruce up your bird collection? Let’s explore some interesting species that start with the letter Z. While many people opt for popular choices like Parakeets, Finches, and Cockatoos, there are plenty of other options available.
For example, the Zebra Finch has an eye-catching look with striped wings and tail feathers and a lovely song. It is highly active, enjoying flying around the sky regularly.
The Cape Sparrow or Grey-headed Sparrow is another fascinating option. These small land birds can often be seen in groups of 10-20 gathered in gardens or public squares. Despite their size, they have a powerful capacity for flight and can easily traverse two kilometers between trees without any difficulty.
Finally there’s the Zigzag Heron (Zebrilus undulatus), which is mainly found near rivers and wetlands in South American tropics. This bird hunts snails, insects, fish and tadpoles for food, with its greenish-grey body having black markings to help it blend into its surroundings perfectly when standing still in shallow waters.
