FACTS & HISTORY: This species originates from Central Africa. They belong to the genus Agapornis, which literally means “birds that love each other“. After a courtship ritual, in which the male shows his love by pecking, a pair of male and female is formed and will be linked for life.
Lovebirds are sociable animals that detest loneliness, which is why, when one of them dies, the other often suffers to the point of dying of a broken heart. Their relationship is so special that they create their own language, which they pass on to their babies.
However, lovebirds not only bond with other lovebirds. If the owner takes on the role of “life companion”, it is possible to have only one lovebird as a pet. Lovebirds seek the affection and companionship of people by making their presence felt with high-pitched whistles, resting on humans’ shoulders and crouching near their necks.
