A lovebird will often select a companion who they spend nearly all of its time with. When kept in captivity it is essential for the birds' health and happiness to retain connection with its life-partner.

The lovebird is an extremely social animal often gathering in small to medium flocks to feed. The masked lovebird belongs to a group of lovebirds called the 'eye-ring' species. There are four eye-ring species, with the masked lovebird having the most brilliant colours.

This parrot is from the dry shrub lands in northeastern Tanzania, often bordering bodies of water.

Our flock of masked lovebirds live in an expansive aviary in our African savannah.
