Windy City Parrot Defines Smaller Size Species of Captive Birds

Last Updated on by mitchrezman

Birds we classify as “Smaller” 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 bout 100 grams – Patagonian conures weight about 20 grams, about the size of a Timneh african grey.

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

Large Canaries

Large Parakeets
Bourkes Parakeet – Canary-winged Parakeet – Crimson Rosella Parakeet – Derbyan Parakeet – Golden-manteled 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.
