There are three types of canary: color, song and body.
Canary: (noun) Classification: Serinus canaria. Member of the Fringillidae family – the true finches. This small but popular pet bird is not a parrot. The male canary is often kept as a pet because of its singing abilities. There are different types or breeds of canaries: song, color and body types.
Canaries are typically kept in pet bird cages. Horizontal cages are better than vertical as canaries like to fly from perch to perch. It is possible to hand-tame a canary, but it would have to be hand-reared and you would need some patience.
The most famous canary is a cartoon canary named Tweety Bird. Learn more about the history of canaries here.
