I would suggest contacting your local parrot rescue, or
craigslist to find an abused bird to help with. But since you
are 16 I highly suggest you do not get a med or large parrot.
Med / Large parrots live a very long time and tend to scare
many people who are fine with smaller birds. Also CAG's tend
to lean towards one person. So chances are you will leave to
go off to college or jail in a couple years. :) And he will
have to live with you parents or rehome him which is not fair.
I would be looking for a Quaker Parrot, Conure, or even a lil
teil. These smaller guys tend to be much more open and
friendly with everyone so rehoming a sweet lil quaker is much
much easier then rehoming a CAG that is set in his ways and
can take a finger off if he's in the mood.
