One of nine species of the genus Agapornis. They are a social and affectionate small parrot. Eight species are native to the African continent, and the grey-headed lovebird is native to Madagascar. Their name stems from the parrots' strong, monogamous pair bonding and the long periods which paired birds spend sitting together. Lovebirds live in small flocks and eat fruit, vegetables, grasses and seed. Black-winged lovebirds also eat insects and figs, and the black-collared lovebirds have a special dietary requirement for native figs, making them problematic to keep in captivity. Some species are kept as pets, and several color mutations were selectively bred in aviculture. Their average lifespan is 10 to 15 years.

Lovebirds are lively flyers and climbers, and as pets they are enjoyed for these antics as much as they are enjoyed for their beauty and their affectionate displays to their mate. The most popular and readily available species are the Peach-faced Lovebird, the Fisher's Lovebird, and the Blue-Masked and Black-Masked Lovebird.

In a serious note, I quite enjoy the detail. It honestly looks like this is just a picture, but I can see the strokes of the pencil and such. This is amazing, it must have taken hours to do this and years to learn to get to this amount of level, even if you do have a natural art talent. I've never seen anything as great as this. This is absolutely gorgeous.
I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THIS IS A DRAWING.
IT'S TO GOOD. TOO GOOD.
