Currently, the pair Hwamei is doing great in their own small aviary with lots of plants both inside and around the aviary. Few small finch (zebra finch) are also share the same aviary with the Hwamei. Both of the Hwamei start to sing at dawn and again at dusk before going to sleep. Plenty of different type of nest and various building materials also provided. Will see how the pair behave in few more months when 2010 breeding season begin.
