Your article about your canary singing for love and loss was especially interesting to me. I had a friend who lost her brother and their were 2 yellow canaries in the hospice home. One day she asked the nurse, "why don't the canaries ever sing?" the nurse told my friend to listen as they only sang when a patient was near death. Sure enough, the morning he died they sang all morning!
You wrote a beautiful story and confirmed my search for why the canary sings. They are obviously very in tune to the heart! thank you for sharing these moments!
