I don't feel that "another" is truly synonymous with "different." Especially in this sentence, so what is the actual meaning of eri?

You might want to read this: https://uusikielemme.fi/finnish-vocabulary/interesting-words/eri-erilainen-erikoinen-erityinen-the-difference/ it explains the difference between a couple of Finnish words and it's not exactly about what you asked, but it still might help to understand the word "eri"

Here is also a wiktionary link to the word "eri": https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/eri

Out of curiosity, can "undulaatti" refer to other parrots or just parakeets?

No. If you want to use a more general term, use "papukaija" (parrot).
