Yellow-fronted Canary, Crithagra mozambica

Yellow-fronted Canary
The Yellow-fronted Canary, native to Africa south of the Sahara, is common on the leeward side
of the Big Island of Hawaii. Introduced to the islands in the 1960s, this popular cage species, known
in the trade as the Green Singing Finch, is also found on Oahu and Molokai. I photographed this
bird uphill from Puako on the northwest coast of the Big Island, where we were staying in January
