A second group is those with thick, rounded bills, as the grosbeak and cardinal. The last group is the crossbills, rose-colored northern birds.

Canary-American Singer - American Singer Canaries were bred to have both a brilliant look and a brilliant song. The American singer canary has been selectively bred for generations to produce perfect song and beauty. The American singer canary is particularly hardy so is an excellent candidate for novices. Some American singer canaries are very aggressive so make sure to keep canaries of similar temperament together. Aggressive canaries will pick on non-aggressive canaries if they are housed together.
