The First Installation of the Fine Feathered Fellows of the Canary Sanctuary!

It's about time to introduce my great birds!
Here you see the proud Mats: the epitome of canary-ism. Here we see him with slightly spikey head feathers following a bath.

And here is (what is most probably) Mats' brother Hilts. Yes, he is named after Hilts of the Great Escape. Thusly named because he tried to escape the box we brought him home in.
Hilts is most probably Mats' brother because they were bought at the same time from the same breeder. They "argue" between the cages too - chasing eachother and generally engaging in sibling rivalries!

Here is Butters (and yes, he's named after the South Park character). He's quite a loud-mouth, and the biggest bird here at the Sanctuary! He and the next canary are in love :) They tweet at eachother all day, and if they're separated for any length of time they plaintively cry for eachother.

Ives: the tough guy. He's also named after a Great Escape character. He's very orange - a fiery one through and through! Here we see Ives right after a bath, in full spikey-feather mode.

Here's Moore, taking a bath. When he made a visit to the vet, he was weighed. When the vet came back into the room with him, the vet said "Here's the little Fatso!" Hahaha, he went on a diet after that! He loves his baths, and has the oddest tweet you've ever heard.
