Social Lives of Country Canaries

#103/365 Paintings

Unlike the city canaries, the country canaries don’t need fancy escape strategies for sunset happy hour. These particular country folk only cage the animals that might eat them or be in danger of being eaten. The canaries… they come and go freely and their songs are heard in every direction. The thing is, if you look closely, compared to the city bunch… well, there are fewer of them. And, are some of them napping? They do seem a bit more laid back as canaries go. They also seem to raise the color frequency around them. Those canaries!
