Once found across northern Australia in their millions, in recent decades the population of the Gouldian Finch, has declined dramatically and is critically endangered with an estimated 2,500 mature individuals. The species now only occurs in small flocks in a few locations in the Kimberley and the Northern Territory, although it is occasionally recorded in Queensland. one of the most interesting things about Gouldian finches is although there are no separate subspecies of the colourful Gouldian Finch, there are three separate forms of the species: a common black-headed form; a red-headed form; and a seldom-seen yellow-headed form, this coulour variety in the same speicies in birds is extremely rare. 


This stunning percher style hat is sure to turn as many heads as its brightly coloured namesake.
