Peach-Faced Lovebird

The rosy-faced lovebird (Agapornis roseicollis), also known as the rosy-collared or peach-faced lovebird, is a species of lovebirdnative to arid regions in southwestern Africa such as the Namib Desert. A loud and constant chirper, these birds are very social animals and often congregate in small groups in the wild. They eat throughout the day and take frequent baths. Coloration can vary widely among populations. Plumage is identical in males and females. Lovebirds are renowned for their sleep position in which they sit side-by-side and turn their faces in towards each other. Also, females are well noted to tear raw materials into long strips, "twisty-tie" them onto their backs, and fly substantial distances back to make a nest.

Dusty was hatched at For the Love of Birds in early 2019. He was born with splayed legs, he was in a splint for several months to correct the problem although his left leg did not correct. He is an amazing bird and loves to play with his cagemate (a lovebird named Sylvia.) Dusty's cage has been adapted for his special needs and due to those needs, Dusty will remain at For the Love of Birds Sanctuary.
