Scaly-feathered Finch - Busy Friends A small group of Scaly-feathered Finch visit a watering hole.  These guys are quick and very active, feeding on grass seeds etc.  In my local language we call them "Preacher's Bird", I guess mostly because of the plumage that reflects dress code of religious men.  Similar to the Secretary's bird's plumage used to describe a "Secretary".
