Black Mask Lovebird
Blue color mutation (left) & wild type (right)
Found in Northeastern Tanzania, this species does not overlap the range of the similar looking Black Cheek. The sexes are similar in appearance. The head is a dark sooty brown. The wings are a dark green, the underside is lighter. The breast and the nape of the neck are yellowish and the flight feathers are black. The rump is a grayish blue. Being easier to breed and having far more colour mutations than their Black cheeked cousins, this species is fairly often seen in Aviculture.
