Specializing in Lovebirds
Pied Mutation (left), wild type (right)
This species comes from northwestern Tanzania, south of Lake Victoria; they are not sexually dimorphic. Their plumage is basically green with light green on the under parts. The forehead, cheeks and throat are bright orange, merging into yellowish orange on the breast and nape of neck. The rump is blue and there are blue, orange, and black markings on the tail. This species is fairly common in aviculture because it breeds readily in captivity and a number of color mutations have been developed.
