Peach-faced Lovebirds

Peach-faced Lovebirds

The feral population of this African species around Phoenix, AZ, is now countable on your ABA Life List. This pair of Peach-faced Lovebirds cuddled at the Gilbert Water Ranch on January 3, 2008.

  2. Rich, I think that the official name is now Rosy-faced Lovebird. I thought Peach fit better.

  3. Indeed. But, like you, I prefer Peach-faced Lovebird. I still use that in all my field notes.
