Join the August Ecoquest: Look Out for Lovebirds! Help us find and map as many Rosy-faced lovebirds (Agapornis roseicollis) and the plants they interact with as possible.
Rosy-faced lovebirds can be seen all over the Valley and are adored by many. Often thought of as a native bird, these cheeky characters were actually introduced to the area. Lovebirds can often be found near water sources, especially with palm trees or houses with roof tiles nearby. Bird feeders are also a common place to spot them. Use iNaturalist to see where they’ve been spotted in the past! How this species impacts other native wildlife hasn’t yet been scientifically studied. There could be plants we don’t know they are eating, or they could be interacting with other birds in ways we aren’t aware of.
