Peachfaced Lovebirds

Called peachfaced lovebirds because the wild-type coloring has a reddish face (not really all that peach-colored frankly), this species also comes in a wide variety of color mutations. Some people get confused when they see a white-faced lovebird and someone says it is a peachfaced lovebird – well, it is! It is just one of the many color mutations that have occurred in captive breeding – but they are still part of the species Agapornis roseicollis (peachfaced lovebirds).


Pied Violet Lovebird

These are just a few examples of peachface lovebird colors.  Be sure to visit the more extensive section on lovebirds to get more details on the various color mutations.
