For people who like birds that are for show.
My beautiful pet canary was a male American Singer canary. From what I know only the males can sing, which mine did wonderfully.
My bird was pretty quite most of the time, he did sing sometimes.. He also kind of mimiced sounds, bells and telephones but I'm not sure if it was really him mimicing or my imagination!
Overall he was a great bird, doesn't make a lot of noise which I was very surprised about!
For the time I had him (5 month) he had no health problems what so ever.
Super independent as many birds are this is not the cuddly pet. He liked to be left alone but wasn't aggrasive at all when handled. A great pet for kids who like to watch animals from a far!
It's just a beautiful, easy to handle pet to have.
