INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Canary Call'

The canary call is similar to a Bermuda option, as it must be called on specific dates. If the issuer of the bond chooses not to call before the canary call expires, the bond will remain a standard step-up bond, where the coupon rate will increase with each step-up period.
