    Default Wednesday Trivia: Roller Canaries

    Roller canaries (also known as German rollers or Harz mountain rollers) have the unique distinction of singing with their beaks closed.

    This produces a lower, less shrill pitch that's more pleasing to the ear, which is why rollers are considered the finest singers in the canary world. Males typically sing more proficiently than females, and they're all skilled mimics.

    They learn to sing by imitating other birds, sometimes singing along with recorded canary songs to perfect their technique.
