Penguin here.

Tomorrow is Valentine’s day, so I thought it wouldn’t be a bad idea to post an image of animals we often associate with romance. According to Wikipedia’s Lovebird article, eight lovebird species are native to Africa, while a single species, they grey-headed lovebird, is from Madagascar. Lovebirds are actually a type of parrot. These colourful birds earned their name because they often form long term monogamous bonds. You can often see them sitting with their partner and, if you’re lucky, resting side by side in their trademark pose like the rosy-faced lovebirds in the image below. Isn’t that so sweet?
