Conures are like miniature macaws with the same character and inquisitiveness.  If you are looking for a macaw's personality in a smaller package a conure may be for you.  Most talk but they're not like a Grey or Quaker.

Blue Crown Conures

(Thectocercus acuticaudata)
The Blue Crowns are one of the larger conures at 14-15 inches.  They are probably the best talking conures and have a easy temperament.  Even the babies are vocal too.  They have become popular since being stars of a movie but that's not the reason to buy them, they are just nice pets.

Green-Cheek Conures

(pyrrhura m. restrica &
  pyrrhura m. molinea)
The pyrrhura conures are the quieter conures.  They are about 10 inches long and are smaller than a cockatiel.  These guys are fun and are nice pets when you don't have a lot of space and want an inexpensive conure. They originate mostly from Bolivia.  They make a nice pet if you don't have lot's of space or are in an apartment.
