their nest and six young ones, were placed in a double cage, with a pair
of canaries, which had a brood of young; there was a division of wirework
between the cages. At first the goldfinches seemed careless about their
young ones; but the cock canary, attracted by their cries, forced itself

continued regularly, until the goldfinches undertook the office
themselves, and rendered the humanity of the canary no longer necessary.
