Dutch Frilled Canary Serious canaria domesticus, originated in Belgium apparently from crossing a Belgian Canary with a Frilled Canary.
The Atlantic canary (Serious canaria) is known worldwide simply as wild canary. It is a small passerine bird belonging to the genusSerinus in the finch family, Fringillidae. It is native to the Canary Islands, the Azores, and Madeira.
Frilled canaries are bred, and best known for, their very ornamental appearance. This is both a frilled breed as well as a bird of position. It has two positions, one when at rest and the other when it draws itself up erect on stiffly braced legs with the head thrust forward, giving the bird the form of a figure seven.
All frilled canaries have swirled feathers on their back, chest and flanks that curl into distinctive, uniform patterns
