Cute bird, but not the friendliest

I had a parakeet for about 4 years. Even after daily attention, the bird would still nip at me (the primary caretaker). Other than that, it was a pleasant pet to have. The chirping was nice, and not too loud. The bird never learned to mimic words or tunes, but I know of other budgies that will learn songs.

I think a budgie would be a good pet for a child to learn responsibility, as they are easy to feed and don't require much upkeep (besides weekly cage cleaning).
