I certainly had no idea where the canaries originated from,but that makes sense - I guess after the birds were given the name canary - the Spanish Canary Islands were named after them???? How else could the Canary Islands have got it's name???or vice-versa????A bit of a puzzlement to be fathomed out.Great little pets, but sometimes you do need ear-plugs.They never seem to shut up tweeting.----------Your Aunt Denise:I told the Denise ( the look-a-like) who comes once a week to the Sofitel for a "flutter", some drinky-poos (Scotch) and lunch with her friend about your "cranky" Aunt.My Aussie Denise said "Impossible - everyone called Denise is "bonne amie and friendly" - that was said through shrieks of laughter!!!CheersB J Hunnicut aka Colin
Problem solved:Island was named first and as these birds were native to the island - they got the name CANARY.Interesting history for the history buffs:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canary_IslandsColin

When I was a very small girl, my mama had a Canary...the only time the little bird would sing is when my mom started sewing on her olden sewing machine...the bird would sing to the top of it's little lungs...and now, I want a Canary....fun.
