Singing Birds
This gallery shows a few of the cagebirds kept for their song and especially for birdsong competitions. In the west, particularly Europe, the canary is the most well known and in particular the Roller Canary. Here the song is a quiet warbling with emphasis in competition given to repeating phrase patterns. In Asia, where birdsong competitions are incredibly popular canaries are almost never employed to be replaced by birds such as the Peaceful Dove in Indonesia and the Hwamei in China. Again song patterns are equally as important but the volume of performance also plays an important part.
