things to consider

-enough time (at least an hour per day out of cage)

-money (avian vet visits, wing clippings, food, snacks, birdcage, portable bird carrier, TOYS. Yes toys are necessary!)

-space for a good sized cage in main room where family members are likely to be in?

-patience (it takes time to develop a bond, understand your bird’s body language)

-do plenty of research online on the kind of bird you’re thinking of owning.

-birds live a long time. will there be anyone to take care of your bird should something happen to you?

-noise level. In general, the larger the bird, the louder they are. If living in an apartment, consider one of the smaller birds
