Pet birds we classify as “Small” species 

FYI  There’s something like 100 species of Conures. Conures need to be subdivided into small, medium & large (which is on our to-do list)

Green cheek conures weigh 64 grams (cockatiels are about 100 grams – Patagonian conures weight about 280 grams, about the size of a Timneh African grey.

Don’t think for a minute conures can be classified into one size category

The large Canaries

Gibber Canary

Large Parakeets
Bourkes Parakeet – Canary-winged Parakeet – Crimson Rosella Parakeet – Derbyan Parakeet – Golden-mantled Parakeet – Grass Parakeet  – Grey-cheeked Parakeet – Lineolated Parakeet – Moustached Parakeet – Plum-headed Parakeet – Red-rumped Parakeet
African Ringneck – Red-crowned Parakeet – English Budgies

Note: American Parakeets/Budgies may be too small for this category and instead check out the Smallest pet bird category for items and cages for them.
