The Yellow-fronted Canary (Serinus mozambicus) is a small passerine bird in the finch family. It is known elsewhere and in aviculture as the Green Singing Finch.
This bird is a resident breeder in Africa south of the Sahara Desert. Its habitat is open woodland and cultivation. It nests in trees, laying 3???4 eggs in a compact cup nest.
The Yellow-fronted Canary is 11???13 cm in length. The adult male has a green back and brown wings and tail. The underparts and rump are yellow, and the head is yellow with a grey crown and nape, and black malar stripe. The female is similar, but with a weaker head pattern and duller underparts. Juveniles are greyer than the female, especially on the head.
The Yellow-fronted Canary is a common, gregarious seedeater. Its song is a warbled zee-zeree-chereeo.
