A Visit with My Beautiful Canaries

As you all know, I keep a number of birds as pets, including a couple dozen or so red factor canaries, which live with me inside my Winter House. They have a large wooden cage I designed after one that came from France, built around 1900 - probably to house doves or quails.

I started raising canaries quite a few years ago, after I discovered how much joy and beautiful singing they offer to a home. Caring for birds is a big responsibility. It requires time and diligence to keep their environments clean, with ample amounts of fresh food and water. In return, these birds provide wonderful company, melodious song and curious, active personalities.

This week, we captured a series of canary photos to share with you, including a few of two new additions to my flock - enjoy.
