The outgoing and popular American Singer Canary is a type of song canary developed in the United States to enhance the freedom, variety, and melodiousness of its song.

This canary is a cross between the Border canary (1/3) and the German Roller canary (2/3) -- enjoying the best traits of both of these traids, specifically the musical song of the roller and the pleasing look of the canary.

Its song is louder than the Roller's -- but softer than the Border Canary's.

Recent breeding successes have yielded songsters with remarkable variety, and melodiousness.

Exhibition birds are judged for both the quality of their songs and conformation.

The combination of quality of song and attractive appearance has caused the American Singer canary to become one of the most popular canaries in the United States.
