This is my comparison of the 2 species. I have a 20 year old U2
and 2 Green Cheek Conures, along with 2 B&G Macaws and a CAG.
The U2 has his moments, although he is rather quite for a Too, but
when the Green Cheeks get on a roll, they can be quite noisey for
a GOOD length of time. And talk about the high pitch.....phew! I
love them all the same, but all birds are individuals and if you
can't stand their vocals, I agree with COnnie, a book store would
be a better place for peace and quiet.
Remember, having birds is like having 2 year olds for the rest of
your life. Enjoy, and good luck!
