Fantastic lizard canary! In this picture the coloring does not appear to be the reddish/orange as with other lizards on the show bench.
This is what is referred to as a "blue" lizard where the color is not as deep?
Would love to see more lizard canary pics if you have them.

I think the lighting in this picture has lightened the top of this bird a little. This is a silver lizard hen. It is not a true blue lizard canary. The chestnut ground color can be seen in this picture on the rump below the primary wing feathers. The blue lizard has the lizard pattern on a white ground.

This bird is out of a line I have had since 2002 and crossed with a new cock that I brought into the aviary in 2007.

I too would like to see more pictures of lizard canaries and would love to see more lizard canaries at the bird shows. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to attract more fans to the breed?
