The society finch or Bengalese finch, Lonchura striata var. domestica is a popular cage bird which is not found in the wild. The origins are unclear but the bird most likely originated in avicultural practice from Japan or possibly China rather than in Bengal in India.

Psittacines (parrots, macaws, and cockatoos) are often considered the most intelligent birds, and among the most intelligent animals in general; pigeons, finches, domestic fowl, and birds of prey have also been common subjects of intelligence studies.

Caution should be exercised, however, since society finches can be asymptomatic carriers for diseases which can prove fatal to chicks they foster, including Campylobacter and Cochlosoma. Bengalese finches appear to be shorter-lived than most other small birds, with an average life span of about 4 years.
