Pictures of Lovebirds and Love Bird Gifts

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~


Enjoy These Pictures of Lovebirds


Lovebirds ... some have feathers, like the one above, and some don't. Those that don't just tend to act "lovey-dovey." But, both are commonly referred to as "lovebirds."

Here are some pictures - posters and prints on canvas - of both kinds. See which poster takes your fancy.

These pictures of Lovebirds make nice wall art. Have a look at them, and then vote for your favorite.

Two of them - "Rainbow Love" and "Love on a Moon Swing" tied for first place in a previous vote. It will be fun to see how they stack up against four new contenders.

NOTE:

Some of the pictures that follow are of posters or prints that are available on line at Zazzle and AllPosters. To check out available sizes and other options, including media, matting, and framing any of them, just click on the link just below the image.

      Video was really cool and cute. as a breeder of lovebirds i completely understand our fascination with them. their beaks look like they're in perpetual smile mode. they are as aggressive as their larger parrot counterparts , but have an almost humanlike expressiveness about them

      The video was adorable. Just like a child trying not to sleep for fear of not being involved in the action. The love bird was determined to stay awake by singing and quivering its body.

      I "loved" your lens because it is well done and I love birds also. As the custodian of 4 exotic birds I am well aware that Love Birds can make awesome pets for the right person who will give them the love and thoughtful attention they deserve.

      I wish I could add a Love Bird to my family but they are too small and would not be safe around my larger birds. Blessings, Will

      I used to love love birds until I bred them and they are vicious really, I have seen them bite each others toes off. So to avoid that you have to have double wire with a space in between so they cannot reach each other.

      I had two peach-faced lovebirds when I was about 12 and they were adorable. I used to let them out of the cage and they would sit on my shoulder and go to sleep. Beautiful colors but noisy!

      I enjoyed the list about the 9 types of lovebirds, very interesting. I always learn something when I read your posts. I'll admit that I'm not a bird fan - I think they're pretty, like to watch them in nature, but have some weird fear of caged, indoor birds. Not sure where it came from, but it's true.

      My mom had a bird in the kitchen as a boy and it never like me - I think it left an emotional scar of some sort.

      Thanks again for a great lens.
