i dont get it sorry,
I would do 1-2 flocks of largers birds but im kinda scared of them,
I wanna get really comfortable with medium sized birds before i get into large birds i mean most macaws are 3 feet from head to tail.
Yeah, don't get a parrot that is bigger than your comfort level. I wouldn't get a large macaw or cockatoo.

Just something bigger than parakeets, since the parrots are probably going to spend a lot of time far away and high up in a tree in such a large, heavily-planted aviary. Smaller birds would be harder to appreciate from a distance.

Also this is kinda unrelated to parrots but do you know if Alstromeria/Peruvian Lillies r toxic to birbs

It is good. I would recommend narrowing down what you want to keep to just a couple of parrot species, then checking if they are relatively compatible with each other.

A larger number of the same species would be better than a wider variety of different parrot species. They will form into a flock and you will need to manage interpersonal issues, but that is much easier when both parrots are the same kind of parrot.

I don't know about that specific lily, but I wouldn't be surprised. Lilies can be quite toxic.

You'll want to check all plants that go into the aviary to make sure they are safe for birds. Parrots chew on everything.

How large of an aviary do you think you could actually build?

I think the aviary would be alot cooler if it was just a couple of small spiecies of birds like budgies and cockatiels and maybe even conures, then the stress of having to separate the birds wouldn't be to big of a deal(except for the conures). I don't know if you want to be friends with the birds, and tame them, but if you do make sure that you prepared it will be harder if the birds can easily just fly to the other side.

What would be the approximate dimensions in length/width and height?

I have a hard time visualizing acres other than "big as a football field".

What unit is used for the length measurement?

Square feet is used for area rather than distance.
