In their natural habitats, the Red rump lives in pairs or in flocks in open country with easy access to water. They don’t like the coast and prefer heavily wooded areas while the provision of water for cattle has actually allowed them to extend their natural range.
Red rumps can be housed in a spacious cage but will need to have plenty of time outside of the cage, so therefore this is an option best suited to birds that have been raised wholly or substantially by humans. Otherwise, this can lead to the stress of having to catch them to return them to the cage, potential injury and eventual behaviour problems due to the stress. If a bird has been raised in an aviary with only modest human contact, that is the best place for it to be.
