Product Description

Identification: The Brimstone Canary (Serinus sulphuratus) is a favorite canary for sale at The Finch Farm, and will be a great addition for your bird aviary, as it is known for its lovely song. When you buy a brimstone canary you can expect a small passerine bird in the finch family, and a resident breeder in central and southern Africa. It is not truly migratory, but undertakes some seasonal movements. The brimstone canary has a heavy bill, which is short, conical and very stout at the base. The bill is light brown with a pinkish or yellowish base. The legs and feet are pinkish-brown. It has yellow-green upper parts with dark green streaking, yellow-green ear coverts and malar stripe, and two yellow wing bars. The underparts are yellow, with a greenish wash on the flanks, and breast. The sexes are similar, but the male is brighter, with a bigger bill, better defined face pattern, brighter yellow wing bars and a greenish rump. Young birds are duller, greyer and less yellow below than the adults.

Geography: This species is found in open, lightly wooded habitats, such as hillsides with trees or scrub and forest edges. In South Africa it occurs mainly in coastal areas, inhabiting coastal bush, shrubs along streams, gardens, and areas with rank vegetation.

Song / Call: The call notes are deeply pitched swirriwirrit or chirrup. The song is a jumble of chirps, whistles, warbles and trills, with the same deep pitch as the call. Northern birds have a faster, higher, less jumbled and more tuneful version of the song.   

Size / Weight: The brimstone canary is 15–16 cm in length with a heavy bill.

Breeding: The brimstone canary breeding season is from July- March and peaks between from August to October. The nest is an open cup built from thin stems and other plant material and lined with plant down. It likes to breed in a leafy bush or a tree.

Diet: Our nutritious Canary Seed, fruit, flowers and shoots. Hard seed cases are cracked with their stout bill.

DNA Testing 

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. DNA testing is an additional $99 per bird to be tested. If you want us to do our best without DNA testing, just make a note in the comment section of your order letting us know your preference. Please note that 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.
