Scooter was an only bird for about a year and seemed to be fine. If they get lots of attention from people, I think a bird companion is not necessary. OTOH, I now have three birds and they do seem to enjoy having other birds around -- they contact call one another and so forth.
However, getting another bird of the same species and housing them together can actually be a negative. In that scenario, the birds may bond closely to one another, especially if they are opposite sexes, and may be less interested in socializing with you.
