||Two years old|
||North Carolina, USA|
is a Fischer's lovebird. She is approximately two years old and
Rainbow is special because she is from my first clutch of handfed
Fischer's Lovebirds which I was hand feeding during the destruction
of Hurricane Fran. We did not have water or electricity for eight days
and Rainbow and her clutch mates were fed fresh spring water obtained
nearby and heated by candle light; therefore, she is appropriately
named Rainbow also because of her gorgeous color!
Rainbow is a normal green Fischer's Lovebird, hatched 8/15/96. The
Fischer's Lovebird was discovered by Dr.G.A. Fischer on his
expedition from Pangani to Lake Victoria, Africa and named in his
honor by Reichenow in 1887. Fischer's lovebirds measure approximately
four inches long. As far as her personality, she has her moments.
Rainbow loves kisses although she can be very temperamental. She coos
to me when she wants attention. She does not talk, but she does
imitate the cockatiels who are housed in the "bird room" with her.
Rainbow has a very big personality to be such a small bird.
