The red bellied finch (Neochmia phaeton) inhabits the tall dense grasses and eucalyptus/pandanus woodlands around Kowanyama. They have a distinct crimson face and beak, and a bright crimson underbelly with small white spots. They are now an endangered species in Queensland and population numbers are impacted by grass fires and invasive weeds. Michl’s detailed work depicts these beautiful birds feeding on grass seeds and collecting course grass bark to make nests among dry pandanus leaves.
