Lady Gouldian finch
The Gouldian finch was described by British ornithological artist John Gould
in 1844 as Amadina gouldiae
in honour of his deceased wife Elizabeth
It is also known as the rainbow finch, Gould's finch, or the Lady Gouldian finch and sometimes just Gould.
It is a member of the estrildid-finch family Estrildidae
, which is sometimes considered a subfamily of Passeridae
It had been placed in the genus Chloebia, as Chloebia gouldiae. A 2009 analysis of mitochondrial DNA by Antonio Arnaiz-Villena and colleagues confirmed its placement in the genus Erythrura. However, the IUCN still calls it Chloebia goldiae. Wikipedia
