My name is Charles Loukeris, and I am a hobby breeder of Carduelan finch's, Canaries, and my specialty mules/hybrids, bred for there unusual color combinations, longevity and unsurpassed singing ability.
I was born in Athens, Greece and have moved to the States at the age of three. Currently I am residing in Billerica ,Massachusetts.
My family had a big influence on keeping/breeding birds as my father and my uncles , used to trap and breed European Carduelan finches, primarily the European Gold finch and while growing up
we always had a Goldfinch or Canary singer in the house as a family pet.
At the age of fifteen I decided to purchase my own birds. At this local pet shop I was drawn to these gorgeous yellow and green
birds that caught my eye. They were Green singing Finches (Serinus mozambicus) and during the course of that year successfully breed them opening the door to my future of bird breeding.
Currently, I still breed the Green singer and a variety of other Carduelans. I have been working with a few species but has been very difficult to obtain new bloodlines. I am interested in producing free breeding strains of African Citril's and the newly imported and still quite rare in aviculture the Lemon-breasted Canary. If anyone is willing to exchange these 2 types of Carduelans please feel free to contact me.
