Unsorted Wild Birds

Seychelles Fody (Foudia sechellarum)

The Seychelles Fodies (Foudia sechellarum) is a small yellowish songbird that lives in the Seychelles islands of Aride Island, Cousin Island, Cousine Island, Fregate Island, D’Arros Island and as of 2004 Denis Island. It shares the same habitat in the Seychelles with a related introduced species, the Madagascar Fody.

The IUCN has recently changed the status of the bird from “endangered” to “near threatened” due to successful conservation efforts by Nature Seychelles.

Presently it is estimated that there are approximately 3500 Seychelles Fodies.
