Out of the many species of of parrot finches have the shortest life span. The life span is expected to be between 5 and 10 years. The larger the bird the longer the life expectancy.

Lovebirds and Cockatiels around 20 years, and the bigger parrots up to 100 years. It would appear the smaller the bird the shorter life and the bigger Parrots live longer
