fischer's lovebird wildlife foundation

Lovebirds are pleasant birds who can entertain families in a polite way. They like to hide under paper, in pockets or anything they can get under and be mischievous. They learn tricks easily but are not very talkative. Happiness is the key to their affection but it is possible for them to be violent; they may kill weaker birds or those behave erratically. Lovebirds behave best in pairs or groups as a single bird can get lonely. If the birds are too old they may become nippy therefore young lovebirds are a better choice.

Hand-raised lovebirds familiarize themselves eagerly to new environments and handling actions.
They should be open to all elements early in life so that they are well attuned to these events. Regulations, management, patience, hooding, and offering rewards are essential to adapt the behavior of Lovebirds. Even with training some Lovebirds cannot be relied upon and may bite when they are annoyed.

The lovebird genus comprises nine species of which five are monotypic and four are divided into subspecies.[3] Eight of them are native in the mainland ofAfrica and the Madagascar lovebird is native to Madagascar. In the wild, the different species are separated geographically.

Traditionally, lovebirds are divided into three groups:

the sexually dimorphic species: Madagascar, Abyssinian, and red-headed lovebirdthe intermediate species: peach-faced lovebirdthe white-eye-ringed species: masked, Fischer's, Lilian's, and black-cheeked lovebirds
