Canaries love the snow!

Pet canaries are descended from wild canaries after which the Canary Islands, located southwest of Spain, are named. In their native subtropical habitat, it never snows. So, you might wonder, how would canaries react to snow for the first time? See for yourself in this YouTube video starring Luciano (overdubbed with his singing), Princess, and Lucy:
