About the Fischer's Lovebird
Fischer's Lovebird

The Fischer's Lovebird is a small species of parrot native to parts of east-central Africa. They live in isolated forest habitat surrounded by open land. They eat a variety of vegetative matter including fruits, seeds, and millet.

Fischer's Lovebirds are colorful little cuties, with a mainly green body plumage. Orange, yellow and red feathers make their upper chest and head stand out. They have a prominent white eyering.

The Fischer's Lovebird has a conservation status of Near Threatened. In the past, capture for the pet trade was a major threat; in the late 1980's the Fischer's Lovebird was the most popular wild-capture parrot for import into the European pet trade. Trapping is now banned. Fischer's Lovebirds breed well in captivity and are known for a loving, affectionate nature.
