[ATLANTIC CANARY]

Serinus canaria

Status:  No accepted records.

Taxonomy: No subspecies are recognized (Gill and Donsker (2017).

Comments: Cage birds are derived from birds native to the Canary Islands, Azores, and Madeira and usually lack back streaking due to selection by aficionados.  An undoubted escape with no back streaking was in western Douglas Co 17 Mar 2016 (Silcock 2016).
