Scientific Name: Lovebirds are scientifically known as Agapornis.
Physical Characteristics: Lovebirds are small parrots with a stocky build, short blunt tails, and relatively large, sharp beaks. They measure about 13 to 17 cm (5 to 7 in) in length, have a wingspan of up to 24 cm, and weigh between 40 to 60 g (1+1⁄2to 2 oz). The wildtype lovebirds are primarily green, with various colors on their upper body, depending on the species.
Habitat: Lovebirds are native to the forests and savannas of sub-Saharan Africa and Madagascar.
Behavior: Lovebirds are known for their ability to mimic speech and sounds. They often chatter and chirp at each other. These birds are highly active and require regular exercise to maintain their physical health. Providing a safe area for them to play outside their cages is important, as they have high intelligence and need mental stimulation.
Lifespan: When kept in captivity, lovebirds typically have a lifespan of around 10-15 years.
