    What are your favorite pet Birds?

    We've always had pet Birds in the house. My wife kept Parrots, Cockatiels, and Conures.

    Now that we're older, we keep smaller, simpler birds, such as Budgies.

    Some people keep Falcons.

    If it were legal, I'd like to have an Al, but it's not legal in California.

    Als have always fascinated me, because they look like they're always in charge of their environment, and they appear to know what's going on!

    Of the several types of Als, my favorite is the Great Horned Al.

    @Hal Pollner I dated an Al once. He probably wouldn't have been legal in California either. :p

    Flamingo....and not just because I'm from Florida. I think they are beautiful and majestic. Like a 'luxury' bird.

    Well, they are quiet, well behaved and don't poop on everything. :D

    Have had Budgies as well, they're very entertaining. Billy, who i had for 7 years, thought i was getting him a cute toy once, was a plastic budgie, put it through one of the perches so it could spin around. think i caused him frustration, he thought it was a girl friend, kept spinning her around, trying to get her in the mood, all efforts failed. I felt so bad, got him a real girl friend, never seen such a happy bird. Once she warmed up to him, things went good.
