I have only owned two birds, and they were parakeets. They were given to me by my friend, who could no longer care for them. At first, the birds were a nice addition to my home. But, after a while, their high pitched screeching sounds became a bit old. I kept both of them until they passed away. One lived for 3 years, the other lived for 5. They were fun to hold in your hand, or rather, let them perch on your hand. Cleaning their cage was fairly easy, I just removed the tray at the bottom and replaced the newspaper. If you are a bird lover, they are fairly low maintenance. I personally wouldn't get another bird because of their high pitched chirping noises.
