Green Canary, Green Singing Finch, Yellow-fronted Canary, Yellow-eyed Canary, Yellow-fronted canary
Grey head with two bright yellow streaks: one above the eyes (“eyebrow streak”) and one below the eyes. Bright yellow plumage covers the entire underside of the bird, extending from the chin down to the under tail. The rump is also yellow. The top of the neck, back, and wings are a greenish grey with yellow margins to the otherwise blackish wing and tail feathers. Juveniles have a pale yellow face and breast with dull greenish-yellow rump and spots/streaks on the sides of the breast.
Sexing: Hens are duller overall and some races have a line of grey feathers extending across the lower throat, resembling a grey necklace. Only the (adult) cock sings, though hen may not sing year-round.
