Which bird has the most attention span/concentration. Please rank

Can you rank each bird in order from least attention span and concentration to most?


Also rank them from the most cuddliest to least cuddliest in GENERAL.

By attention span,concentration i mean which can just sit with you and watch tv without dosing off elsewhere. Or Just interact with you the longest for periods of time whether it be watching TV or getting cuddles or scratches or learning tricks.

also if you guys can recommend me another small to mid sized bird (similarly sized to senegals preferably) who are known for good attention span but also quiet enough for the apartment then please do let me know.

Honestly it all depends on an individual bird. You'd have to get to know one bird in particular to know how it was going to act. You could get a really easy to bore timneh grey but a super enthusiastic budgie HOWEVER, generally it would go like this most likely...

Timneh grey
Green cheek

But like I said, it's not always true!

For cuddles:
Green cheek
Timneh grey

I find my budgies to be the snuggliest of my birds though! Honestly, it really really does depend on the bird itself

Have you considered the pionus genus? I really like them, they're beautiful, not often loud (depends on the individual... again!) and very clever birds. There's also the other parrots in the poi family (same as the Senegal), there's the red bellied, Meyer's, brown headed and Jardine's! There's three more but they're not very common at all, so I wont go into those. Alexandrine parakeets are also lovely birds, big, but lovely! I don't know if they are that loud though, from what I've seen they aren't but they certainly have potential to be

- Alexandrine parakeets Kona, Peaches, George (missing), Holly (RIP), & - Orange winged Amazon parrot Paulie - Black capped lory Charlie - Red fronted kakariki Bilbo
