Starting a finch collection

A Goldfinch is rarely seen for sale in this part of the world. So, couldn't resist the temptation of getting one. Hope it turns out to be male. So far not singing at the moment. Has a very strong preference for Niger seeds...

A hybrid from a cross between a Green Singing Finch and Canary.... hopefully it turns out to be male too as such crosses often produces sterile mules. But potentially a good singer :)

Out of curiosity, often referred to as a F1 canary in Indonesia... maybe its time I try my hand at producing canaries and finch hybrids....

And I heard some Spanish Timbrados are available in K.L.
Time to plan an excursion :)
