The canary is a small songbird with a lovely singing voice, so lovely they became popular pets in European courts. They were also useful as an early warning system in the coal mines; toxic gases would affect the canary first and he would sadly die. The main character in the cartoon Tweety Bird is a canary. Norwich City football team’s nickname is The Canaries, because Norwich was famous for breeding and exporting the birds.
