Visiting My Canaries and New Finches

My vibrant and melodious red factor canaries are thriving and filling my home with song.

As many of you 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. The canary cage is one of two located on my enclosed porch. In the other cage, I now have a pair of beautiful Combassou finches given to me by Ari Katz, a very passionate and knowledgable avian enthusiast. These small, friendly finches are native to South Africa and are dark in color with orange feet and pinkish-white bills - such wonderful additions to my flock.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
