There are three kinds of canary breeds - song, type, and colour. Song canaries generally come in either yellow or green, or a combination of the two. Colour canaries come in a wide variety of shades, and type canaries are bred for their posture or shape.

      This page shows just a few of the many colours and shapes the Canary is found in - just click on the thumbnails to see a larger version of each picture, with comments. Click on the large picture to return to the thumbnail page.

This site is dedicated to all of those who try to help others on our journey to a better
tomorrow, and especially to Jack Merkens, whose last words to me were "Promise
me you'll keep writing about those canaries! Never stop, ok? Promise!"
Okay, Jack. I promise.
