Canaries are small, lively birds mainly with yellow plumage, known for their sweet and sparkling harmonies.  There are many color variations of the small, active Canary. They were originally introduced to European bird fanciers in the 1500s by the Spaniards who discovered them in the Canary Islands off the western coast of Africa. Canaries measure 5" from head to tip of the tail. Canaries generally don't like to be handled although there are a few rare cases. They are better as pets to be watched as opposed to being held. Canaries don't require companionship of their own kind, as long as their human companion talks with them. The beautiful song of the male bird makes the canary an entertaining pet.

Origin : Canary Islands.
Genus : Serinus. 
Foods :Canary seed and green vegetables such as spinach. For most kinds of canaries, color-feeding (feeding food with dyes to improve plumage) is recommended.

I have two pairs of lovebirds and recently I shifted them to bigger cage. But shifting they became very noisy and not ready to come down to eat. If I hand feed them than only they eat and drink. Is it because of change in their cage? I shifted them on Wednesday, March 18, 2015. They are active and if hand feed eating well. Please guide me what to do so they start eating themselves
