Pionus parrots are kind of sensitive, and males can get aggressive, but they're not as bad as the smaller Poicephalus or larger Amazons.

You're asking about a lot of animals, which is good, but you probably need to narrow down what you want in an animal. Parrots and birds of prey for example, have about as much in common as a monkey and a fox, probably less. Parrots are demanding, fun-loving partners for life that want attention 24/7, and are super intelligent. Birds of prey are stupid (no 'ffense), solitary animals that are only about the next meal. Nothing like predatory mammals, like canines and felines, and like I said in the other thread, illegal as private pets in the US. :/ You need to be a true falconer to keep any bird of prey.

Then there are tons of exotic birds that are far less demanding than parrots, and can be kept "for fun". I want to have kookaburras some time. Like enormous, cartoonish-looking kingfishers with the plumage of a hawk, and a gorgeous call. And they eat insects and baby mice (as do many softbills, if you don't get something that eats fruits or seeds), so you have to think about what diet you can handle too. ;)
My main interest is in parrots, dogs, toothed whales and snakes.
Future animals I want to have when we have land are camels, wolfdogs/wolves, coyotes or jackals, striped hyena or aardwolf. Also poultry, rabbits water buffalo and/or yak for livestock.

It would be nice if you replied and said thanks now and then instead of just asking/demanding answers from us. We don't mind answering questions but it is rude to repeatedly ask tons of them and never say thanks and just keep asking more especially when most of them you could get easy answers for via a bit of your own research like a web search.

Myna
Mousebirds

Finches (kinda they are waxbills but eat soft seeds)

toucans
Toucanettes
Tockus Hornbills


Softbills are basically any thing that eats a "Soft diet" fruit, insects, meat, nectar. So it encompass a lot of species. The above are friendly and pretty easy to keep though the bottom 3 will be more work than the top 2.


Doves are hardbills

Can't keep any species of native bird without permits, which aren't given to pet owners. You can own non-native owls, like the Eurasian eagle owl, but they're expensive and need very large outdoor enclosures and require some experience with handling raptors as they are large and very powerful.

If you want some cool exotic birds, here's a website you can browse and check them all out. I love the corvids.
https://birdproduct.com/birds-sub-categories/
5 Dogs, 2 cats, 1 leopard gecko, 1 guinea pig, 1 axolotl, and a coatimundi currently in my family. :)

Exotic "wishlist": red fox, mink, bat eared fox, jerboa, lemur (brown or white ruffed), egyptian fruit bat.

Glad to help. I love talking about animals. : )

The funny thing is that American wild birds are allowed to be kept in Europe bt generally not America and vice versa. So depending on where you live these animals are available.
