The Dybowski’s Twinspot (Euschistospiza dybowskii) comes from West Africa and spends much time on the ground searching for food. Females are usually slightly smaller and paler than males. These birds remain very nervous in captivity and are best left for experienced aviculturists. Total length is 4-1/2 inches.
Male Dybowski’s are the most aggressive of the Twinspots and a close eye must be kept on them when breeding. Even their own chicks must be removed as soon as they are independent. They require a good quality seed mix that includes mixed millets and wild seeds, offered both dry and soaked. When breeding livefood is essential.
