Lovebirds are intelligent, affectionate, and playful little birds. With proper care and adequate socialization, many form especially strong bonds with their owners. Those that don’t have a lot of time to spend with a Lovebird typically purchase a mate for their pet, as these birds are extremely social and cannot thrive without interaction.There are nine sub-species of lovebirds, the Peach-Faced, Red-Faced, Madagascar, Abyssinian, Nyasa, Swindern’s, Masked, Black-Cheeked, and Fischer’s. Each type displays different colors and markings, but the Peach-Faced — by far the most common — has a gorgeous yellow, green, and blue body with a brilliant splash of peach or apricot on their heads. Color mutations also occur in several types, and are often available.Some of the smallest members of the parrot family, Lovebirds have captivated bird owners for over 100 years. Although they rarely talk or mimic, these beautiful little birds are exciting to watch and charming to interact with — traits that have made them one of the most commonly kept pet bird species.
True to their name, Lovebirds thrive on social interaction, and require a mate to keep them company if their owner is unable to handle and socialize with them regularly.
