Finches are birds that appear in The Lion Guard universe. They live in the Pride Lands.


In the Real World

Finches are orange birds with a black mask and black chest feathers. The upper part of their wing feathers and the bottom of their tails are light brown, with a dark brown on the upper part of their tail feathers and just below the brown feathers on their wing feathers. Their primary and secondary feathers are yellow. Their beak and talons are grey.


Finches make their nests on trees or bushes. They feed on seeds, fruits, and insects.
