Description

Description

Description: Lovebirds are one of nine species of the genus Agapornis (Greek: αγάπη agape 'love'; όρνις ornis 'bird'). They are a social and affectionate small parrot. Their name stems from the parrots' strong, monogamous pair bonding and the long periods which paired birds spend sitting together. 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. Lovebirds are among the smallest parrots, characterized by a stocky build, a short blunt tail, and a relatively large, sharp beak. Provided with adequate space, a stimulating environment, and appropriate nutrition, a lovebird can become a cherished companion parrot. They love to snuggle and often preen their favorite people. Establishing a bond with gentle handling is important. The Black Masked Lovebird or Yellow-collared Lovebird (Agapornis personatus) is a favorite color variety of the Masked Lovebird. Though easily bred in captivity, this attractive variation also occurs naturally in the wild. 

Geography: Africa

Song/Call: Click for Black Masked Lovebird Song

Size: 6"

Life Span: 10 to 15 years

Sexing: Monomorphic (visually hard to determine sex)

DNA Testing 

If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $99 per bird to be tested. If you want us to do our best without DNA testing, just make a note in the comment section of your order letting us know your preference. Please note that if no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender but will do our best. See our FAQs for more info.

Temperament: Friendly and easy to care for, the Black Masked Lovebird will make a delightful and enjoyable addition to any household. These lovebirds are relatively hardy and are easy to breed, making them every bit as good a pet as the Peach-faced Lovebird. Some even suggest that they may be a bit calmer, though others say they are just as mischievous. Black Masked Lovebirds are very social and love companionship. 

Breeding: Pet Black Masked Lovebirds are easy to breed.

Nice birds, but...

The birds you sent me are very healthy and in good feather. However, one of them is a hybrid between a black masked and a Fischer's love bird. I specifically asked for two black masked lovebirds. Because of this I am somewhat disappointed.

Extremely Happy with Purchase!

Birds have been here a full week now and no signs of stress from their flight to Alaska. The Finch Farm was so patient and understanding about my unusual situation. By that I mean the cold weather that we have had. They had my birds shipped to me before it got in the 20’s and below. One suggestion would be to have a net handy to catch any escapees as these little guys are fast!!! Very happy with my purchase and if needed will use again in the future as birds in our pet store here are way overpriced.
