My black-masked lovebird was given to me by his previous owner after his mate, a peach-faced female, escaped and flew away. He's adjusted quite well to being by himself, but makes sure I give him lots of attention whenever I'm around! (For such a little bird, they sure can chirp LOUD!) I bought him a little 3-way mirror at Petco that he spends hours in front of, chirping to and pecking at the "other bird" on the other side of the mirror. That and providing him with a variety of other entertaining bird toys keep him busy and happy throughout the day. So key to keeping a single lovebird is to give them lots of love and attention, and a mirror really helps too!

I have two black masked lovebirds. Their names are Lucy and Ricky, from " I Love Lucy". They are very affectionate to one another, but are very timid toward me. I know for a fact that they were not hand fed as babies. I strongly encourage buyers to buy hand fed chicks. Otherwise, they may not want to be around you.
