Meet Barry The Canary, The Bird With A Bowl Feather Cut (11 Pics)

Meet Barry, the adorable little Gloster canary with a groovy hairdo that looks just like a very well done bowl cut.

“I’m the birb with the fringe!”

Gloster Canaries are originally from the Canary Islands, but nowadays you won’t find them in the wild. These birds are a result of many years of selective breeding.

These birds are known to be talented and very avid singers.

“On the 26th of July we went to a pet shop to look for the perfect bird. We came back on the 27th and thought he was definitely the one!”

“We believe he is 1 and a half years old but we have no proof (Glosters can live 7 – 12 years).”


 “There are two types of gloster canaries, one being consorts they are the ones without the fringe and the others are coronas with the fringe and it’s pretty obvious which category barry falls under!”

“Barry absolutely adores going out in his bird carrier. We will walk around parks and fields and he will tweet and hop with excitement.”

“He also loves sitting on the window still and singing.”
