What size aviator harness would be right for my bird?

I have a POW parakeet and when he gets older I would like to take him out. I was thinking of getting an XS because he's about the size of a cockatiel?

Michael knows much more about this harness than I do, but I think that the extra small harness will prove to be too large for your bird. I think that you will need the petite size of harness.
The average weight of the Princess of Wales Parrot is about 92 grams and the petite harness is for birds weighing 75 to 110 grams.

I bought harnesses for Rambo and Myrtle but have not tried them yet.
Most tell you what bird they will fit. I just bought the ones listed for Amazons.

From the weight and similarity to Cockatiel I would say petite.
