Peach faced lovebird

Peach faced love birds are very friendly little creatures and you will often see them huddled together in small groups in the wild.

A loud and constant chirper!

They get their name from their sleep position in which they sit side-by-side and turn their faces in towards each other.

They eat throughout the day and take frequent baths. They can be found in dry, open country in southwest Africa and live up to 1,600m above sea level in woodland, semi desert and mountainous areas.
