    You have a pair of birds that are very likely going to want
    to nest,and a male that's going to be very territorial and
    chase off anything he sees as a threat.Now finches aren't as
    bad as say lovebirds or keets that will take off a leg or
    toe,but he can injure him,or chase him until he has a heart
    attack,or not let him eat,etc.If it were me,personally,I'd
    pull the canary out and give him a nice big cage by himself.
