Budgies are Awesome: Can budgerigars and lovebirds live together?

Lovebirds belong to the genus . There are nine species of lovebirds and they are all native to Africa except one. The exception is the Grey-headed Lovebird which comes from the island of Madagascar. Most lovebirds live close to the equator where they inhabit dry savannah regions. There is one exception, a forest dwelling lovebird, the Black-collared Lovebird.

In the wild, lovebirds live in flocks which can be small -- containing just a few pairs -- or very large -- containing up to 800 individuals. These larger flocks tend to gather around sources of food or water during the dry season, when resources are more scarce. These social birds communicate with one another using a series of vocalizations, for breeding purposes and to warn others of potential danger. These birds are primarily herbivores -- eating seeds, nuts, fruits, berries and flowers -- but may eat the occasional insect.

    Ask yourself these questions before getting a lovebird:
    • Do I have a safe space to keep this lovebird?
    • Do I understand that I am able to provide a home for him at all times? Lovebirds can live for 10 to 20 years.
    • Am I financially able to provide for this bird? Fortunately, lovebirds have modest related costs but you will still need to budget for the additional requirements, such as housing and seed.
    • Do I have enough time to focus on playing, singing, and talking to this bird?
    • Will the noise of this lovebird be bothersome to my family or neighbors? Most families adjust with ease to having a lovebird around. They are not difficult to live with.
    • Who will take care of this bird while it lives in our household?

The lovebird is a small stocky parrot mostly between 5.1-6.7 inches (13-17 cm). They have a large bill and a tail that is either round or square. Their average life span is between 10-12 years with some living even longer. The lovebird has been recorded at 17 years and several people have reported their birds living even longer than that. We had one person state that their lovebird lived for 25 years!
The different species of lovebird are identifiable by their colors and markings. They vary greatly in their coloring, and each species can be viewed for their unique combinations. Younger birds are duller in color and they have black in their beaks. The young birds coloring intensifies as they reach maturity. Regardless of the species, mature lovebirds are gorgeous parrots.
Three of the nine lovebird species are most commonly available lovebirds for pets. The other six are more rare, and in some cases, absent at least in the United States. The three common species are the Peach-faced Lovebirds, the Masked Lovebirds, and the Fischer's Lovebirds, and all three make wonderful pets. There are a variety of color mutations in lovebirds, developed from these three common species. This is especially true for the Peach-faced Lovebird, which can be bred in hundreds of different combinations of mutations. As a result, there are many new lovebird colors available. A wide variety of lovebirds can be found in the pet industry and from breeders. Some lovebirds and lovebird mutations that are commonly available include:
