3 Popular Pet Birds & Bird Accessories to Consider, Manhattan, New York

Birds are just as beautiful as they are fun to watch, which is why many people choose birds over other more care-intensive pets like dogs or cats. However, with thousands of breeds available, it can be tricky to choose the right bird for your family. Here are some birds people like to adopt as pets so that you can select a pet and start shopping for bird accessories.

Popular Types of Pet Birds

1. Cockatiels

Cockatiels are small, bright, and incredibly friendly, making them a great pet for low-maintenance households. In addition to mimicking the noise from doorbells and microwaves, Cockatiels can live for up to 20 years when well cared for. Like other birds, Cockatiels need exposure to sunlight to maintain adequate levels of Vitamin D, so keep them in sunny places in your home.

2. Quaker Parrots

With kind, loving personalities and the ability to speak several words, Quaker Parrots are a fun addition to any home. Roughly the same size as Cockatiels, Quaker Parrots require medium-sized cages that are about 24”x24”x24.” They also typically live between 15 and 20 years. However, as social birds, they typically do best when housed with other Quaker bird accessoriesParrots, so consider buying a pair of these birds to help them live happier lives.

3. Hyacinth Macaws

Known as the gentle giant of birds, these gorgeous, dark-blue birds can grow as large as 40 inches and have a wingspan of up to four feet. These birds are easy to train and love to be around people but can require an exceptionally large living area. However, if you have a spare room or sun area that you can dedicate to a large living space for your bird, these gorgeous birds can be an interesting and enjoyable addition to your home.
