Border Canaries are the result of the evolution of common canary. They were bred in the Scottish Borders and the North of England in the 1700s. They are noted for their huge, alert eyes and well-rounded head. These birds are often found in clears, yellows and buffs, variegated, ticked, whites, blues, cinnamons, and greens. Border Canaries are active, social, good-natured, and engaging species. They are also low maintenance and trainable birds.
