Compared to the domestic Canary this bird is quite dull, but for me is the more beautiful. The male still sings quite beautifully and when you hear this beautiful song in the wild you would never want to see one of these birds in a cage again.

Canaries on The Canaries
What trip to the Canary Islands is complete without seeing this lovely little finch, which is the original form of the domestic Canary? This bird is pretty common on Tenerife and can be seen almost anywhere, from the forests on Mount Teide to the chain link fences in the town of Puerto de la Cruz. It breeds on all of the Canary Islands (except Fuerteventura and Lanzarote) and also on the island of Madeira.
