This little finch is a very pleasant companion bird whose cheerfulness is communicated with a melodious song that is much softer and more pleasant than that of many larger birds.

 

This undemanding little charmer is an excellent starter bird for beginners. When kept as pets, canaries typically live 10 to 15 years, but the average is five to six years

Housing for any bird is an important factor for keeping it healthy, but proper housing for the canary is essential for keeping it happy and singing.

 

Also, each canary should have its own cage, or the result could be deadly. Canaries are territorial and do not like to be housed together.
