ABSTRACT
Lovebird, a member of a group of small parrots notable for the apparent affection they show each other. Couples rest their heads together and caress each other for hours on end. The birds grow to be about six inches (15 cm) long, and are commonly green, white, and gray. They are popular cage birds, requiring care similar to that given to canaries. Lovebirds are native to Africa and Madagascar. Typical species are Fischer's lovebird, shown at right, and the masked lovebird, shown in a color picture in the article Parrot.
