Australian zebra finch, Taeniopygia castanotis

Zebra finches are very industrious when it comes to building nests. These finches will choose any location they believe will provide the best protection for their nest. In this instance, they have chosen a water bore control panel at a remote goldmine in the Great Sandy Desert in Western Australia.
