    Hi Albert. You don't mention what state you live in.
    But here in southern California,Lake Elsinore area. Were
    having a spider outbreak.

    I Had my friend at Inland Valley Hospital and that nite in a
    3 hr period three people came in with brown recluse bites.

    There are more than just venomous biting spider included in
    this outbreak,some are very poisonous and some are harmless.
    It those few in the middle or lower realm of poisonous bites
    that can bite you Parrots.

    I would take your Canary to the vet! Best of wishes.

    Warmest Regards Phil/Wild
