Why Use Images of Canaries?

Canaries are known to be sensitive to toxic fumes, so miners used to bring the birds into mines with them as an early danger warning system. That's why “a canary in a coal mine” became an expression used for describing a person who provides early warning of a coming danger. For the environmentally ill who are sensitive to toxic fumes, the expression seems especially apt. That is why some of us refer to ourselves as canaries.
