I've been interested in getting a bird for a while, and I think now I'm ready to properly consider buying one. I do need some advice, though, on what kind of bird I should purchase. It will be my first bird, and I'm mostly thinking of buying a medium-sized bird, but I could settle for a small bird if absolutely necessary. I'm looking for a bird that could fit around these criteria: Can live happily around a school schedule [5-6 hours alone per day, but will be in company for the rest of the day] Is quiet [I'm planning on keeping the bird in my bedroom, and I would like to be able to sleep. ] Can be comfortable in kinda low temperatures [I live in a cold area, and my house can get cold of a night] Any suggestions on species would be great!
