SPECIES INFO

The Diamond Firetail Stagonopleura guttata is a species of estrildid finch found in eastern Australia, from Eyre Peninsula, South Australia, to south-eastern Queensland, commonly found on the slopes of the Great Dividing Range.

Threats

Diamond Firetail's habitat has been threatened by alteration of vegetation structure caused by over-grazing, weed invasion, salinization and other flow-on processes. This loss of main food plants and habitat caused competition with invasive species, and predation of adults or young of Diamond Firetail.
