My Beautiful Canaries in Spring

My colorful and melodious red factor canaries are thriving, and this time of year we have several beautiful babies and more eggs just waiting to hatch.

As many of you know, I keep a number of birds as pets, including a couple dozen or so canaries that live with me inside my Winter House. They have a large wooden cage I designed after one that came from France that was built around 1900. It sits at one end of my airy and light-filled enclosed porch. Early every morning, one of the first things I do is remove the cover from their cage - they are all so gorgeous. I love their company, sweet song and curious, active personalities.

Here are some recent photos of these darling birds - enjoy.
