Wild Type (above)
The Nyasa Lovebird is found in parts of Zambia, Malawi, and Rhodesia. The back and wings are dark green, the underside lighter with a yellowish tinge. The head, neck and breast are a bright orange-red more vivid on the head, merging into yellowish on the breast. The beak is red. Although this species is not sexually dimorphic, the hens are said to be darker in colour than the cocks.
