Canarian Folklore: Our Bird Breeding Hobby


Jasper and Pearl, our young Gouldian Finches.

Bird breeding culture is really important in the Canary Islands, and we both come from families that have bred birds; my grandfather was a budgerigar breeder, who inspired the love of birds in me, and Fernando’s parents (and himself) are farmers, who have bred many types of birds, as well as farm animals.

18 years ago, I tried to do it myself, but I was too ill to do it, and had to give away my birds, which was truly heartbreaking for me. In June 2018, I fell seriously ill (as in, they thought I would die – ill), and was hospitalized for 3 weeks, but I finally got a correct diagnosis, and was able to start healing completely. Right now I am as full of energy as can be, and almost completely healthy – to say that I was excited to recuperate my hobby is an understatement.

You can follow the adventures of our aviary on our page La Pajarera on Facebook – photos, videos, and lots of tips for healthy bird friends!
