Rosy cheeked Lovebirds

fluffy Lovebirds

Lovebirds are small parrots, about 15cm from beak to tail tip. Gregarious birds who live in large flocks, they actually pair off in the breeding season, and breed for life with the same partner. Their name comes from the way they cuddle up to one another, snuggling especially in the early morning to keep warm. There are a few different species in Africa, and they occasionally will cross-breed in captivity creating unusual colours.
