Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A colorful lovebird of East African savanna that is also found in woodland, cultivated areas, and around human habitation. Note the green back, the broad yellow collar, the black face, and the red bill. The flight is fast and direct, on twitching wingbeats. Often found in flocks. Similar to Fischer’s Lovebird, but easily separated by the black rather than orange head. However, hybrids showing a mix of the two species’ traits are now common, especially in Kenya and along the coast. The common calls are a scratchy “sveet” and high-pitched squeals.
