Lovebirds have the fun personality of parrots, with the advantage of being more manageable due to their small, compact size. They are mostly known for their affectionate behavior towards their “chosen mate.” They love nothing more than “hanging out” with their bonded mate (which can be his or her owner, or another bird).
These little birds are genuinely devoted to their owners. This, however, may cause problems of jealousy towards other birds and other pets (including cats and dogs). These brave little beings will not think twice about attacking other birds much larger than themselves, even cats and dogs — anybody indeed whom they perceive as rivals for your attention.
