Masked Lovebird Species Profile
Traits:  Not as common as the Fischer’s or peach-faced lovebird, the masked lovebird is somewhat smaller and not as aggressive as the peach faces. They enjoy chewing and constructs nests in the wild out of twigs, so provide your pet masked lovebird with plenty of toys to chew on. Masked lovebirds are also distinguished by their black heads and white eye rings.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  The masked lovebird can be nippy, territorial and a prolific chewer. Masked lovedbirds can overindulge on seed, so make sure to provide plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and exercise. Because they are good escape artists, owners need to make sure that every opening is latched shut to prevent unwanted escapes. Masked lovebird's age can be determined by the color of its beak. Adults have a red, orange, light gray or horn-colored beak, depending on the species. Juvenile masked lovebirds have black-marked beaks. The exception is in the black-collared lovebird, which has a gray-black beak as an adult.
