Temperament: Not only are they pleasing on the eye but are a beautiful singer as well. However, If they are kept with birds of a similar color it would be wise to keep an eye on them as some can get quiet nasty towards similarly colored birds. They should not be housed with Grey Singers and can become quite aggressive during breeding season. Only one pair of Green Singers should be housed in a mixed aviary.
Breeding: The breeding season for the Green Singer is around March/April through until about September/November. Some pairs appear to prefer to bed in winter while others will adopt a more “normal” breeding season. White-tipped Green Singers enjoy a cup Nest, preferrably high in an aviary. Provide Nesting Material and watch as both male and female construct the nest in an adorable fashion.
