parrot/parakeet ?
by: Anonymous

Parakeets are parrots,many say parakeets have long tails,however macaws[which are classified as parrots]have long tails.Many conures[parakeets?]are classified as aratinga,an offshot of the catagory ara,which is macaws.
Many say parrots are biggger,however an Alexandrine[parakeet] is twice the size of a senegal[parrot].
In essence parakeets are part of the parrot family.....therefore parakeets are parrots.
