The orange-breasted waxbill (Amandava subflava) or zebra waxbill, is a small (approximately 9 cm long) sparrow-like bird with a reddish iris, orange breast, red bill and dark olive-green plumage. The male has a red rump, dark bars on the whitish flank and a scarlet eyebrow stripe. The female is duller and smaller than male; it also lacks the male's red eyebrow. The orange-breasted waxbill is found in grassland and savannahs south of the Sahara in Africa.
