Gloster Canary Species Profile
Traits:  The Gloster canary is a type canary, bred for its physical appearance rather than for its color or song. Gloster canaries have roundish, compact bodies and are lively and bold. The Gloster canary has two versions: the crested bird, known as the Corona, which resembles a “mop” of head feathers; and the plain-headed bird, known as the Consort. The crest in the Conora type should have no interruptions and should not cover the eyes. The Consort uncrested head should not be too small and should reveal a light brow line.

Gloster canaries have a pleasant song that is louder and choppier than that of a song canary. They tend to be hardy and are lively and bold and need a spacious care or aviary.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  The Gloster canary does well in either cages or aviaries. They are on the timid side and should not be housed together with budgies/parakeets, lovebirds or other hookbills that tend to be more aggressive. They like to bathe daily and should be given water to do so. Their environment should not be wet, cool or drafty, and if they are given space to sunbathe, they should also have a shaded area. Keep perches clean to avoid any foot problems.

Expert Advice
"Corona glosters should have a nice, mushroom-shaped crest which covers the eyes and should not be confused with other types of crested canaries, which have a daisy shaped crest."

— Mandy Currie, Singing Wings Aviary
