There is no better word than "Aria" to describe the song of an American Singer canary.  You'll notice in the definition shown above, taken from Webster's Dictionary, that "aria" means "an elaborate melody sung by a single voice, a striking solo performance".  The literal meaning of this Italian word is "air". 

The aria sung by an American Singer male freely fills the air with a variety of rolls, trills, and phrases unique to the breed.  His song affects the whole atmosphere of the room as he performs his "striking solo performance".  You'll look twice, thinking that the cage must contain more birds than just one, as you hear the "elaborate melody" spiraling out of the bird cage.  With an American Singer canary, you will enjoy hearing an aria from your bird cage every day.

The American Singer is a song canary, bred for the quality of their song.  Few other breeds can even hold a candle to the American Singer as far as making the perfect pet canary.  They are not just another pretty bird sitting in a cage to look at. 

Canaries are not squawkers or talkers like parrots, nor are they peepers like finches.  Canaries are SINGERS, born and bred... and no batteries are required!!  As long as you provide for his basic needs of food, water, and a safe environment, he will reward you with hours of merry singing and cheerful company.

This site is devoted to providing information on the American Singer canary to the pet owner, and those who are thinking about expanding their hobby and actually having a "birdroom".  The content is based on my own experience in this fancy and valuable advice I've received from other bird lovers I have met along the way.  I hope to encourage folks like you to enjoy this wonderful breed of bird.
