Breeds of canaries: Melado Tinerfeno

Origin and history

Origin: Spain.

There are written records of the existence of Melado's ancestors as early as 1850. Some breeders and enthusiasts began the selection of this canary in the city of Tenerife, from which it took its name.
The breed was recognized by the Spanish national body in 1991, so it can be said that the Melado Tinerfeño is a very recently acquired breed.
