The Peach-faced (or Rosy-faced) Lovebird (A. roseicollis) is found in southwestern Africa in dry, wooded country up to 1500 m. Like many lovebirds, Peach-faced Lovebirds are typically seen in small, fast-flying flocks. The diet consists mainly of seeds, sometimes taken from the ground. Peach-faced Lovebirds are very dependent on water. Capture for the cagebird trade has seriously impacted populations in southern Angola.
