Release 7.7.0 - "Red-headed Lovebird"
"It makes its nest in a termites nest usually in a tree or sometimes on the
ground.  To make a nest the female digs a tunnel up to a length of 30 cm (12
in) in the termites nest in a colony with other lovebirds."

"The population is suspected to be in decline owing to ongoing habitat
destruction and unsustainable levels of exploitation."

Release 7.5.0 - "Yellow-collared Lovebird"
"White eye-rings lovebirds, of which Yellow-collared lovebirds are part, are
reportedly less aggressive in comparison to the slightly larger peach-faced
lovebird.  They are frequently housed in aviaries with other species of
their genus, a practice which although can be convenient, and wonderfully
aesthetic, may lead to hybridization.  This can especially be concerning
where other species may not be as locally common e.g.  black-cheeked
lovebird, and Lilians lovebird." -


Prepare for the 7.4.0 release.


Supported release 7.3.0 - "Peach-faced Lovebird"
"The rosy-faced lovebird is a fairly small bird, 17–18 cm long with an
average wing length of 106 mm and tail length of 44–52 mm.
Populations have been reduced in some areas by trapping for the pet trade.
However numbers may have increased in other parts due to human creation of
new water sources and the building of artificial structures which provide
new nesting sites." -
