How loud are Blue-Throated Conures?

I was doing my research for birds and I fell in love with the Blue-throated Conure and I was wondering how loud they are? I live in an apartment. They're in the Pyrrhura family and I've heard that they were a "quiet" species.

Thanks!

I don't know if we have any here on the Avenue! They are not a common species in captivity despite how beautiful they are!

Can't say much about the blue-throated, but my roseifrons (while relatively chatty) is a pretty low-volume bird. Loudest contact call she has is only painful if she's doing it straight into your ear -- from outside a door or window, it can still be heard, but it's pretty muted. Think "loud voice" more than "scream". How often any bird would do that, would depend on temperament and care, but ours has been relatively infrequent -- someone arrives/leaves the house, and just after waking up (HEY!I HEAR YOU! COME GET ME!!!)

Similar species from similar region -- opposite sides of Brazil, but the habitats sound similar and aren't entirely disconnected -- the cruentata looks to be a bit bigger on average . . . I'd think there might be some similarity, but hard to say.

Thank you for the information and your bird is really adorable!

There used to be a few members with them, but they have not been active for several years.
