9. Monk Parakeets
Monk parakeets are also relatively quiet birds, though they are great talkers too, and can learn to speak very early on. Monk parakeets are becoming one of the most popular types of birds to teach to talk.
Monk parakeets have big personalities, and they are very sociable, intelligent, and sweet. They are fairly small and easy to maintain, and can be amused by simple toys such as toilet paper rolls.
