Which small bird do you like most?

If your small bird favorite isn't on here then just pick your next favorite. If you haven't owned one of these small birds before then just vote for one that you think you might like. I'm curious to see what's the most popular small birds in this forum

yeah of course we love them all, a Cockatiel could have been your first bird when you were little and that is why you voted, there are many other reasons but it doesn't mean we don't love all other birds ..... Anyways, I am very surprised there's another one voted for lovebirds, I had thought they don't have many fans in this forum :P

linnies or tiels linnies or tiels ...why do you have to make it so hard!?

I love both...but I'll go tiels as they rarely ever bite.

Some of the gang:

Linnies or budgies? I love them both! It's like asking which is your favorite kid! If I had to choose, I would lean to linnies. Don't tell my budgies


And God said, "...let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." And God saw that it was good.

Lovebirds rule! hehe

I still think it seems like almost every member has or has had a green cheek conure haha I've had all of the species on your list and each has it's own pros and cons, but as we always say, it depends on the individual bird. You could have the worlds nastiest green cheek conure but the sweetest lovie

How is Ragga getting on Tippa? What makes you like him so much? If you don't mind me asking! I don't mean that in a bad way, like urgh I can't stand him, how can you like him!? Kind of way but I mean what makes him different to your other flock members that you like so much? What I like about my lovies is they're very over confident compared to my other birds and although they aren't always snuggly, they are very loving in their own way

Yeah, but at one point nearly every subject seemed to be all about green cheeks in this forum; senegal Duke was being kicked out left, right and centre all the time when he had wanted to join in the conversations at that time, we had felt so lonely among the greenies . Ever since the green cheeks 'Roll Call' was refreshed, some the die hard fans have moved to greener pastures I think

I can't think of anything bad to say about little RaggaMuffin. He is ever so funny, very intelligent, he's also a little brave heart. I can do whatever I want with him, so cuddly he is . He is also very quiet compared to the quakers and conures, and he poop less frequently.... Umm have I said he's also extremely cute? Amongst my lots he is at the top of the chart with for me at the moment.

I say Cockatiel because I have only ever owned a Cockatiel or Budgies. I have met Lovebirds, GCCs and such though. I love GCCs but I don't know if they are too loud or not for me, lol.

I am 100% biased, but I think a Parrotlet is the perfect bird! My little pocket parrot! And frankly after I have owned a parrotlet, nothing else really seems like a "small bird". My lovie is twice his size! That being said though, I love all birds! Such amazing creatures.

PS: There seem to be a lot of people in Europe on this forum. How common are parrotlets over there?
