The Black-cheeked waxbill (Estrilda charmosyna) is a common species of estrildid finch found in east Africa. The lively Black-cheeked Waxbill are native to the Acacia (Acacia) scrub and thickets, riverine thornbush, so the acacia flower is a favorite diet item.

DNA Testing If there is no gender option listed for a bird on our website, that particular species is ‘monomorphic’, which means we’re unable to determine gender without purchasing DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $149 per bird to guarantee preferred gender. DNA testing may add an additional 3-6 plus weeks to estimated delivery time to allow for gender results. See our FAQs for more info. Temperament:  Black-cheeked Waxbills are active, not restless finches who need a lot of room for exercise. Planted greenery in the cage or aviary will give them a feeling of security. Breeding:  Monogamous, territorial solitary nester, with pairs staying together for at least 3-15 months. The nest is built by both sexes, consisting of a thick-walled ball of grass leaves and inflorescences with a long entrance tunnel on the bottom. A cup-shaped false nest may be added to the top of the structure to distract predators from the real entrance.
