What birds are on your wish list?

I thought I'd make this thread to see what birds everyone here would like to own eventually. I'm setting my hopes high on a Solomon Island Eclectus, hopefully. I haven't settled on whether or not I would want a male or female, though.



Thank you Mr. Peepers for the sig!

Once I get my green cheek, I'm not sure if there is any other bird that I really want. I am just so infatuated by their little noises and antics.

I can say that my hubby really wants a CAG, but I'm not ready for that much noise yet :P he doesn't realize what he is in for yet with the GCC, so it'll be interesting to see if he changes his mind hehe

A lilac crowned Amazon. Or a pair of plum headed parakeets. Lady gouldian finches. More cages and Apple to invent the iCage...self cleaning, toy rotating, food dispensing cages

Nice choices! I'm sure I'll have a bunch of other types of birds, but I just fell in love with the Eclectus species. On one hand, I think the females are beautiful, but the males are generally mellower. The next bird(s) I'll get will be either a pair of cockatiels, linnies, parrotlets, or a GCC. A friend of mine is raising a clutch of lovebirds, but I don't have the room for one at the moment, unfortunately.



Thank you Mr. Peepers for the sig!

Oh I love this post idea.

I just got a Rose crown conure so that's one. I was originally going to get a Crimson belly

So my list would be get a house first, build a bird room, get more cages and then birds:

Crimson belly Conure.
Quaker parakeet
Budgie
Lovebird
And probably another Linnie.

Great idea! I want to have a bird room eventually, too. Right now my two budgies are content to be living in the kitchen, though!

Great idea I wanted to add this rose crown conure to my flock but I can't.

@Nikki, I know you wanted her but you made the right decision not to get her. Now you won't have to eat ramen noodles for the next 6 months.

Still pining for an Eclectus, but next bird will most likely be a cockatiel.

I want an Amazon!!! And I just found a lilac crowned near me for a really good price.....but right now is not a good time . With the kids and the dogs and the cat and the fish and the linnies it's too much. And I really don't know if I REALLY want an Amazon, because they can be so destructive. I love letting the linnies out and not having to worry that they'll rip up the moldings or break the remote control, or anything really. They are perfect, except for being hand shy.

I have owned a few of my dream birds but unfortunately lost them. I'd kill for another orange winged Amazon or black capped lory, though I don't know how I would feel about it. Realistically speaking I'd love a large macaw or two (probably blue and gold and green winged), galahs, bare eyed cockatoos, black capped caiques, Vosmaeri eclectus (have you SEEN the females!?) and Derbyan parakeets. Unrealistically, though hopefully achievable while I exist haha, would be hyacinth macaws and red tailed black cockatoos. Amazing birds. Since I won't be keeping birds in the home any more except for my disabled guys, I'm speaking in terms of aviary birds

Of species I don't have, I would love an African Grey (either a CAG OR A TAG). And an Orange Wing Amazon or Lilac Crowned. And a Jardines. (The own bird I regret not getting was a Jardines). Realistically however, I will probably never be able to have any of them. At 53 years old I have no intention of bringing home a baby of any of these species. Also I have 6 birds already. I do not have the room, time, space or finances for another at this time.

Of species I have, I would love another Hahns Macaw or 2 or 3. And another Pionus or 2 or 3. And more pois. (Senegals, Red bellies).

The only dream bird left on my list is a Hanhs Macaw. I'd love to adopt one many years in the future, once I build my house.

I'd also love to own Silkie Chickens, and ducks!

So many birds, so little time! Realistically, I probably won't be getting any birds bigger than a cockatiel until I own my own place. I'm still in high school and like in my mom's house and two budgies are about all she can handle
