    Are Canary Winged parakeets good in coexisting with other small parrots?

    Are Canary Winged parakeets good in coexisting with other small parrots? Or are they rather aggressive or territorial? We have a parrotlet and a budgie living in the same room (our living room).

    Some interesting (to me) research that involved wild green-rumped parrotlets... Researchers have discovered that baby parrots babble to themselves, much like human babies do. The parrots aren't just saying the avian equivalent of goo-goo-ga-ga. Instead, they're repeating back the bird sounds...
