*lovebirds are a social and affectionate small parrot. 7 species are native to the African continent, and the grey-headed lovebird is native to Madagascar. their name stems from the parrots' strong, monogamous pair bonding and the long periods which paired birds spend sitting together.

 

they live in small flocks and eat fruit, vegetables, grasses and seed. black-winged lovebirds also eat insects and figs, and the black-collared lovebirds have a special dietary requirement for native figs, making them problematic to keep in captivity.

 

some species are kept as pets, and several color mutations were selectively bred in aviculture.

 

their average lifespan is 10 to 15 years.
