Description

These birds are sold in pairs only

Description: The lemon-breasted canary (Crithagra citrinipectus), also known as the lemon-breasted seedeater, is a species of finch in the Fringillidae family. Although their common name would indicate that each lemon-breasted canary indeed has a yellow throat/chest, this is not the case between males and females, making them easy to differentiate. Only the males have the signature yellow feathers in the breast region. The females have mostly cream and brown feathers, less distinct head markings. However, both sexes have noticeably yellow rumps around the tail feathers and bicolored beaks, the upper part being darker brown/black than the lower part. In addition, males also have white and yellow cheek patches and two yellow and white dots above their beaks. 

Geography: Southeastern Africa; Malawi, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Zululand, South Africa, and Zambia. Its natural habitats are dry savannah, subtropical or tropical dry shrub land, and rural gardens.

Size: about 5 inches

Song/ Call:

Sexing: Easy to determine gender in adult birds.

Breeding: Nests are built mostly (and preferably) in specific species of palms, using the brown fibers of the palms to help construct the outside of the nests, though the inside is lined with softer materials. During breeding season, males are busy singers. Their song is brief, rapid, and relatively tuneless and occurs in a series of short rising and falling twittering. Their breeding season occurs between December and May, but main activity is in January and February. These birds are monogamous and are fairly solitary and territorial.

Diet:  Canaries thrive on our special blend of Canary Seed, supplements of dried egg food, calcium from our cuttlefish bones and Australian Blend Goldenfeast. 

DNA Testing:

If there is no gender option listed for a bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without purchasing DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $149 per bird to guarantee preferred gender. DNA testing may add an additional 3-6 plus weeks to estimated delivery time to allow for gender results. See our FAQs for more info.
