The White Canary is a small songbird in the finch family originating from the Macaronesian Islands, including the Canary Islands. Canaries were first bred in captivity in the 17th century. They do very well by themselves.
A pure white bird is an Albino or clear bird that lacks any melanin or pigments in the feathers. It occurs in both dominant and recessive forms. The white of the dominant white canary is dominant to yellow instead of being recessive. Dominant white canaries have a yellow tinge to the shoulders and the edges of the flight feather wings. Dominant white canaries may have dark or pink eyes, depending on the presence of the melanin.
