Less Common Pet Birds

Below are some less common, but popular, pet birds–these are birds that are kept as pets, but are not as common as the birds listed above. Because most of these birds require special care and supplies (such as an aviary and full flight), we didn’t include them in our quiz. If you have an interest in these birds, we suggest researching them on your own and making sure you are fully able to care for them.
