The Roller is a breed of canary that was developed in the Hartz Mountain region of Germany. It is considered a "song" canary, which means it is bred for singing, not appearance or unusual color. Rollers are small birds which sing with their beak closed. Their song is very soft and has the lowest volume of any canary breed.

There is an English language version of the Hartz Roller Canary Page with more information on the German Roller (to see the English menu, use the left frame to open "The Hartz Roller Canary")
