Meet Barry—an adorable Gloster canary with a groovy head of hair that looks like a perfectly done bowl cut. "I'm the birb with the fringe!" Barry says on his Instagram bio, where he has more than 2,000 followers now.

While Gloster canaries did originate from the Canary Islands, they are not seen in the wild. The birds are the result of decades-long selective breeding. There are two varieties of Gloster canaries: Consorts (smooth heads) and Coronas (crested heads, like Barry). The birds sporting cute "Beatles haircuts" are not as social with humans as, for example, parrots, and don't desire much human interaction. The Glosters are also known to be avid and talented singers, which, along with their full crest, has caused them to become very popular among bird lovers.

"On the 26th of July we went to a pet shop to look for the perfect bird," Barry's owner told Bored Panda. "We came back on the 27th and thought he was definitely the one!"

"We believe he is 1 and a half years old but we have no proof (Glosters can live 7 - 12 years)," the owner told us. "There are two types of gloster canaries, one being consorts they are the ones without the fringe and the others are coronas with the fringe and it's pretty obvious which category barry falls under!"
