Welcome to the forum. I don't have hands on experience with either of those species but a senegal could be a good choice.

Here realize that the first part of that statement is relative to other parrots (ie not extremely loud.) Not to discourage, as I have happily had a conure in an apartment for 3 years, but the noise levels they CAN make when they so choose is not to be underestimated.

Really though the second part of your statement is more right on.



Welcome again, browse around the forums, as another future bird ownee (yes ownee not owner) was recently asking similar questions prompting a pretty good discussion.
