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:

blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
