Parakeets are modest sized birds that come in different colors and types. Some live in warm climates outdoors. They are gregarious. Some live indoors and happily toss stuff out of their cages.
Parakeets, if handled young, are good companions. Some will learn to talk a bit and some will look at you like you are strange, indeed when you try to teach them to talk.
