Cheep Cheep was the first pet bird I owned as a child. He was easy to care for, had a nice little song, and lived a long time. This little finch didn't mind being handled, but he didn't like it as much as some of the parrots I've owned.
These little guys don't require a ton of space, and you can easily keep a pair of them in a reasonably sized cage.
Zebra Finches are perfect birds for someone who wants a low-maintenance pet bird that is fun to look at and sings a pleasant tune from time to time. Their chattering is adorable.
