[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Seychelles Fody (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. The IUCN has recently changed the status of the bird from "endangered" to "near threatened" due to successful conservation efforts by Nature Seychelles.[1] Presently it is estimated that there are approximately 3500 Seychelles Fodies.
It shares the same habitat in the Seychelles with a related introduced species, the Red Fody.
