Sweet, quiet and good natured birds, they prefer quiet chatter to loud shrieks and do well in close quarters. These sweet parrots are an excellent choice for anyone looking for their first pet parrot, as they are low maintenance and capable of entertaining themselves with toys for hours while their owners are away. They bond well with human companions and are very trainable. The Bourke’s Parakeet has a lifespan of 10-15 years in captivity if well cared for.
