Our Canaries

Meet our Canaries. Christy and Phebo.

In the beginning of November Christy was staying close to the nest.

She wouldn't let us see what she was sitting on.

Even Phebo was kept away.

Two weeks later, on November 25, we saw what all the excitement was about.

A tiny baby had been hatched. Here you can see it peeking shyly over the nest, under the careful eye of Mom.

It was still shy but getting big for the nest.

"Stop pointing that camera at me!"

Final the debut! On November 26.
This seems a little suspicious. There are always many sparrows around the cage. Hmmmmm! I wonder?

The first family portrait on November 30 with Mom - Christy, Dad - Phebo, and the baby.

Judy went to the breeder where she saw many canaries with a few that looked like sparrows. The breeder explained it happens and Christy's dad was probably dark like a sparrow. So mystery solved.
