White-throated Canary, Northern Cape, South Africa (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hi all, saw this canary at Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in Oct 2023 - it looks ok for a White-throated Canary (huge bill) but curiously has a very yellow wash to its upperparts, tertial edges and even rectrices, is this usual for a White-throated Canary? Photos I have seen online of this species never seem to have this much yellow wash.
