Nyasa Lovebird

..

 

Normal; Nyasa Lovebird (Agapornis lilianae)
Size 135 mm

Sometimes confused with the Fischer's lovebird, the Nyasa is a slightly smaller bird with the general colouration brighter than that of the Fischer's. The facial area, extending to behind the eyes, is bright orange red with the back of the head being yellowish green. The remaining plumage is a strong green colour. When Nyasa's are of pure blood, the rump and tail show a clear light green. The bill is a bright red fading to a light horn colour close to the cere. The eye is also adorned with a white eye ring. Feet are a bluish grey.
A lutino mutation exists but is genetically not a strong bird and is rarely available. In some literature a Blue mutation is said to exist
