The Painted Finch (Emblema pictum) is a common species of estrildid finch found in Australia. It is also known as the Painted Firetail or the Painted Firetail Finch. It is the only species in the genus Emblema.
A good finch diet consisting of mixed millets and canary seed should be supplemented with greenfood and the heads of seeding grasses. During the breeding the young will benefit if the adults have access to sprouted seed, live food and eggfood.
