Love Bird Pictures and Gifts
Lovebirds, both the avian variety, and the human kind, are synonymous with occasions connected with romance - from puppy love, to golden anniversaries.
True lovebirds are smaller parrot type birds, native mostly to Africa, and are popular with breeders and bird lovers. Masked Lovebirds, like the dark-headed ones in the photo to the left, are one of the more popular species of avian lovebirds. (You'll find some other love bird pictures on this page.)
Humans who are not terribly reserved about showing affection in public are also sometimes called love birds.
Lovebird themed items are just perfect many times of the year. For example, Lovebird decorations are beautiful on Christmas Trees, Lovebirds make beautiful themes for weddings, and, of course, they are a natural for Valentine's Day. So, here are some pictures of lovebirds, and love bird gifts - lovebird themed gifts for lovers of lovebirds, and love bird gifts for human love birds, , too.
Be sure to see the precious little lovebird singing herself to sleep. So sweet~
