The budgie gives bang for the buck as far as parrot species go. While small and quiet enough to live closely with you and your neighbors, they are also outgoing and playful enough to entertain you for hours. Given a cage mate or two, they don't require too much of your time, but are wiling to interact with you for a treat or an interesting new sound or toy. These active little birds need more room than you might expect, and benefit from being allowed out of their cage regularly to stimulate their active minds.
