Types of Lovebirds | 9 Amazing Lovebird Species | Hutch and Cage (2022)

Lovebirds are often referred to as pocket-sized parrots and their vibrant colors, sociable natures, and reputation for being great companions means that Lovebirds are one of the world’s most popular small birds to keep as a pet.

If you are looking to get your own lovebird as a pet then you might wonder how many types of Lovebirds are there?

There are 9 different species of Lovebirds with eight originating from Africa and one originating from Madagascar. There are three common types of Lovebird which are mostly bred and kept as pets (Peach-faced Lovebird, Fischer’s Lovebird, and Yellow-collared Lovebird).

The other six species are considered rare and rarely kept in captivity (Lillian’s Lovebird, Grey-headed Lovebird, Black-cheeked Lovebird, Red-headed Lovebird, Black-winged Lovebird, Black-collared Lovebird).

In this article, we cover the different species of Lovebird and describe their characteristics, which types are most commonly kept as pets, and also which species of Lovebird are the rarest.

Common Lovebird Characteristics

Before looking into the different species, we’ll first cover some of the similar characteristics that you’ll find Lovebirds to have, regardless of their species.

The first characteristic that all Lovebirds share is their size. They are widely referred to as “pocket parrots” as a result of their small size (and as a result of being a part of the parrot family Psittaculidae) with most being 5 – 7 inches in height.

In terms of physical characteristics, they have a short, stocky build, short blunt tails, and a sharp beak. Their colors are often a key indicator of their breed (despite the fact that breeding has led to new color mutations for most of the species) and for that reason, we will cover this in more detail shortly.

Another characteristic that all Lovebirds have in common is their Zygodactyl feet. This is where two toes point forward and two toes point backward which allows these small birds to keep their balance and hold on to small items when perching.

Types of Lovebirds

There are 9 different species of Lovebird in total. As mentioned earlier, the first three are the most common Lovebirds and are often kept as pets, the next six are considered to be rarer species and are wild flocks that are rarely kept in captivity for breeding or as pets.

Below we will give a brief overview of each species and point out their more defining characteristics.

The most common type of Peach-faced Lovebird (excluding breeding mutations) is easily distinguished by its dark green plumage and peach colored face and neck.

This is the final species of lovebird which is commonly kept as pets and these are a very social species that do not cope well with isolation. They either need plenty of human contact or a lifelong mate for companionship.

The Lilian’s Lovebird, also known as the Nyasa Lovebird is one of the rarest and least studied of all the lovebird species. Not only are they quite difficult to breed but they are on the near-threatened list and have a very small total population.

Lilian’s Lovebirds are characterized by a light green plumage with a bright orange neck, head, and face. As a result of their rarity, there are very few color mutations with this breed so they can often be much easier to identify.

5. Grey-headed Lovebird (Agapornis Cana)

Types of Lovebirds | 9 Amazing Lovebird Species | Hutch and Cage (5)

The Grey-headed Lovebird is also commonly known as the Madagascar Lovebird and is the only species of lovebird to originate from outside of Africa. These birds are native to the Madagascan Island off the coast of Africa and some can also be found on neighboring islands.

6. Black-cheeked Lovebird (Agapornis Nigrigenis)

These birds were initially thought to be a subspecies of Lillian’s Lovebird species though they are now considered to be their own individual species. They have a slightly dark green plumage, a dark brown/black head, and cheeks with a dark yellow throat.

7. Red-headed Lovebird (Agapornis Pullaria)

The males can be distinguished by their green plumage with a red face, head, and beak. The females are similar in terms of plumage, however, their cheeks, face, and beak are a lighter orange color instead of the red found on males.

These birds mainly have a green plumage all over though they can be easily distinguished by the black collar around the nape of the neck (back of the neck). This is the only noticeable marking on this species and there are no separate subspecies with different mutations to their color either.

Lovebird Grouping

While we mentioned that the first three species are the most common to keep as pets and the remaining six are rarer species, there is also a further way to categorize each species based on certain characteristics.
