What is the best pet bird for you? Quiz

Want a pet bird? There are so many to choose from!

Choosing the best pet bird is very important when it comes to both you and your new bird's ultimate happiness and well-being. Mismatched birds and owners land many parrots in bird rescues around the world.

To help you not add to the already out-of-hand bird rescue problem, after you've determined that a bird is the right pet for you and your family, this quiz is a simple way to find out what is the right pet bird for you.

Remember: This quiz isn't only meant to figure out what the right bird is for you...but also whether you are the right owner for each bird. So, keep your answers honest and this is a great first step to making sure both you and your new pet bird will be very happy with each other!
