Canary

birds bred song

Canary, name of several small song birds, particularly a finch native to the Canary Islands (Serinus canarius). The wild canary is usually gray or green in color, but tame birds have been bred to produce the characteristic “canary yellow.” Canaries have been bred in Europe since the 16th century and are valued for their song.
