Lovebirds are loud, much louder than GCC's.
I think GCC's are awesome. I've had two, Apple (who passed away a few months ago)
and Autumn, who I just finished handfeeding. I think when they are by themselves,
(with no other green cheeks) they can be clingy. Apple would pick me over toys and
treats any day. He loved me to death, I could just tell! He loved to be out of his cage
and with me. However, he never screamed for attention or made lots of noise when I
wasn't around. I think he was a pretty well-rounded bird; he would accept when I put
him back in his cage and would find something to do, but when he saw me coming to
let him out, he was excited as can be!
Autumn seems to be a tad bit more clingy, but maybe it's just because she is still a
baby. I haven't seen her play with many toys yet (might be because she simply
doesn't know how to) and whenever I walk into the room she's in, she will fly to the
cage door and chirp in anticipation. However, I'd say I really enjoy my birds wanting
to spend time with me.
If you want to go with something small and quiet, a budgie or cockatiel is your best
bet, as parrotlets and lovebirds are loud.
