Description

Description

Identification: The Black-throated Canary (Crithagra Atrogularis/Serinus Xanthopygius/Serinus Reichinows), also known as the Yellow-rumped Seedeater, is a species of finch in the Fringillidae family. Known for it's beautiful song, the Black-throated Canary is an awesome bird for any avian enthusiast! These birds are generally docile and can usually be kept with other birds within this tier. As always, observe the birds to make sure they are getting along. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, dry savanna, and subtropical or tropical dry shrubland of Angola, Botswana, Burundi, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gabon, Kenya, Lesotho, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe

Geography: Africa

Song / Call:

 

Size / Weight: 4.1"–4.7"; 8–14 g

Temperament: The Black-throated finch is usually non-aggressive, good beginners bird, however some birds may be aggressive to smaller finches. One of the best Australian finches to breed and may breed year round. Do not mix with Masked or Long tailed finches due to the possibility of hybridization.  Only house one type of Black throated finches per aviary to avoid hybridizing the sub-species. 

Breeding: The Black-Throated Canary form strong pair bonds. Can be housed as a colony and the males will defend the territory around their nest. As with many other species of Australian finches in a colony situation, there will soon establish a pair that becomes the "dominant pair". The dominant pair will usually produce more young than any other pairs of that particular species. The least dominant pair may produce no young in a breeding season. Removing the least dominant birds to an aviary without any other black throated finches will allow these birds to resume normal productive breeding behaviours and results. Do not house Black throated, Long tailed, or Masked finches together as hybridization may occur. 

Lifespan: 7-8 years 

Diet: Canary Finch Seed, Flowers, Nector of Aloe, Insects (aphids, termites)

 DNA Testing  Note: If a DNA test is selected by a customer to determine gender of a bird, a charge of $99.00 is charged per test, and the results may take 3-6 plus weeks for results. 

* If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic,' which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing. If no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender, but will do our best if you note your preference in the comment section of your order. See our FAQs for more info.
