Food: Grass seeds and other small seeds are the staple diet, but they also take relatively large amounts of animal food in the form of insects. During the breeding season in particular insects are indispensable.

Abyssinian Crimson-wings live in pairs, sometimes together with their young for a while. Very timid birds that mostly stay in the thicket. They can be kept together with other estrildid finches without any problem.
