Yes, African Ringneck parakeet :heart: Here's my guy with his nice full black mustache :) Females have no ring and their beak stays darker once they're adults, from what I've read. I adore their vocalizations - it's like R2D2.

I have got conflicting information on Africans. Some say they are louder than macaws and some say they are quiet. I know every bird is different, but what is most common?

I’m debating between the mini macaw, the BB parrot, and the African ring neck right now. I’m leaning towards the BB.

maybe I heard the BB alarm call..lol ive searched and can't find tge matching vocalization on you tube..it was a loud BBB sound. But the species isn't known fir being loud thst im aware of

These species are all very different that you are considering. So keep up your research to see what will be a good fit for you. You csn visit the sticky at the top.of each species forum for the good, bad and the ugly

I can hear my ARN's flock call and alarm call from inside my next door neighbor's house with our windows closed, but the sounds themselves aren't annoying to myself or any of my neighbors. In general he's quieter all day than my Quaker or than most conures I've met.

I think the best way to figure it out l, especially if you're looking at rescues, is to meet as many birds in person as you can. You could do some volunteer shifts at Best Friends if you're nearby, or if your area has a rescue. I've learned a lot from volunteering and have learned which sounds and calls I find enjoyable and which I don't. Some sounds that I don't care for are species I was heavily considering before I met my ringneck, so I got lucky :)
