Also, consider the lifespan of a bird and plan to keep it for (its) life. We have a local bird rescue here and it's PACKED with birds that have gone from home to home to home. Mostly people cannot take on a macaw or cockatoo for life.

Here's my buddy, dancing:

I would avoid sun conures and anything that lives over 20 years for a first-time bird. I've had birds for years and there's no way I could handle a sun conure. Their scream is ear-piercing.
