Though now popular in Australia, neither the finch nor the canary is a native bird. The canary originally came from the Canary, Azores and Madeira Islands, and the finch is believed to have originated from South America. Because of their beautiful colouring, small size and wonderful singing, canaries and finches are now very popular with bird lovers all over the world.
When it comes to feeding your canary or finch, it's important to refill the seed dish every day. Before filling, you should also remove any remaining seed - which may include empty and dry husks. Of course, always make sure your bird has plenty of fresh, clean water available, and you should thoroughly clean the water container at least once a week.
Understanding Bird Body Language
You can learn a lot about birds by watching their body language. A bird that whistles or sings is generally happy, safe and content, whereas one with its head down, body feathers ruffled and tail feathers flared can be feeling quite angry and aggressive. Very loud chatter can also be a sign that a bird wants more attention, as can wing flapping. Some birds will also tap their feet as a sign of dominance over their territory.
