average lifespan of parrots depends on the type

A parrot’s life span in captivity is considerably shorter than his potential life span. This is due to environmental factures. How long they enrich your life is in your hands. Proper nutrition and veterinary care are key factures in the life span of your companion bird. Here are some approximate life spans for various species of common companion birds.
NOTE: The larger the parrot the longer the commitment. Most of these birds require a lifetime commitment.


Macaws 50 - 100 +

Cockatoos 40 - 60 +

Amazons 50 - 70 +

African Grays 50 - 60 +

Eclectus 65 - 85

Conure 12 - 30

Lories and Lorikeets 13 - 25

Caique 30

Senegal 50 years

Cockatiel 12 to 20

Parakeets 7 to 18 years

Lovebirds average 15 to 25

Canaries average 10 to 15 years

Finches average 5 to 10
