Like other Parrot birds, it is believed that lovebirds can form a strong bond with their owners. However, they must be given the proper amount of care, as well as large amounts of attention. Pet lovebirds should be given a pellet diet, and this should also be combined with gains, fruits, and vegetables. Lovebirds will generally range from 13 to 17 cm in size, and they can reach a maximum weight of 40 grams.
The Lovebirds Parrot has a stock build, though the bird itself is small. The tail will be short and blunt, but their beak will be quite large for their size. Lovebirds are some of the smallest members of the Parrot family. The vast majority of these birds will either be lutino, green, or blue, but there are a number of color mutations which can show a number of different colors. Some sub-species of the lovebirds may have black colored beaks, and the yellow collared lovebird will have a ring of white which surrounds its eyes. These birds have a maximum lifespan of about 15 years.
Based on their disposition, the Lovebirds Parrot can be an excellent pet. However, those who wish to own these birds must have both the patience and time to care for them. These birds are known for their ability to bond with their owners, and they can create strong relationships which can last for the rest of their lives. Lovebirds are both healthy and energetic, and while this is common for members of the Parrot family, the lovebird is more energetic than most. If these birds are given enough space, as well as toys and attention, they can become excellent pets that can live for a long time.
There are nine sub-species which make up the Lovebirds family, and all but one of them can be found in Africa. Other than the African mainland continent, the remaining species can be found in Madagascar. These nine species of lovebirds will often be categorized by their geographical location. Like many members of the parrot family, lovebirds are sociable animals, and they will often live together in flocks. They enjoy eating vegetables, fruit, and grass. They also enjoy eating various types of seeds. The Black winged lovebird enjoys eating figs and insects. Only a few of these birds are sexually dimorphic.
The nine members of the Lovebirds family includes the Masked Lovebird, the Peach Faced Lovebird, Fischer's Lovebird, the Black cheeked lovebird, Nyasa Lovebird, the Abyssinian Lovebird, the Madagascar Lovebird, the Black Collared Lovebird, and the Red Faced Lovebird. If you wish to get a pet lovebird, it is important to remember that is is best to purchase one that was raised in captivity, rather than one that was caught in its natural habitat. The reason for this is because lovebirds caught in the wild are more likely to die due to illness.
