Long-Tailed Paradise Whydah Video Stock Footage

It is a brood parasite to the green-winged pytilia. Male long-tailed paradise whydahs imitate the song of the male green-winged pytilia. The whydah chicks are larger and louder than the host chicks, so the foster parents will give them more attention than their own chicks. Although difficult to breed in captivity because of their brood parasitic nature, these finches, particularly the males, are sold as pets in the United States and other countries. When breeding these birds in captivity, a single male is usually given access to multiple females and each female needs access to multiple active green-winged pytilia nests.
