Description

Description:  The White Bellied Canaries for sale, are also known as the Somali Canary, and sport a colorful white and yellow chest. White Breasted Canaries are small to medium-sized, stubby-billed finch with a slightly notched tail and prominent white belly. It's song is a series of loud, sweet, musical phrases and trills interspersed with several harsher notes. This bird is a close relative to domestic canaries and is a superb singer. Canary breeders hybridize this species with their domestic bloodlines to improve the resulting offspring’s singing ability (they also use these birds as “singing tutors” for young canaries). Found in Lowland and submontane arid and semi-arid bush, acacia (Acacia) woodland, dense thorn-scrub, sparse woodland in grasslands and open savannas, also woodlands at edges of cultivation.

Geography:  Eastern Afica; Sudan, Ehtiopia, Somalia, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania

They lay clutches of 1–4 eggs, variably whitish, pale blue to greenish-blue, occasionally with fine blackish or reddish-brown spots. Incubation is by female alone. There is no information on duration of incubation and nestling periods.

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 you want us to do our best without DNA testing, make a note in the comment section of your order letting us know your preference. If no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender but will do our best. See our FAQs for more info.
