Lady Gouldian finch

The Gouldian finch was described by British ornithological artist John Gould in 1844 as Amadina gouldiae,[2] in honour of his deceased wife Elizabeth.[3][4] It is also known as the rainbow finch, Gould's finch, or the Lady Gouldian finch and sometimes just Gould.[5] 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.[6] A 2009 analysis of mitochondrial DNA by Antonio Arnaiz-Villena and colleagues confirmed its placement in the genus Erythrura.[7] However, the IUCN still calls it Chloebia goldiae.[8] Wikipedia
