The Black-winged Lovebird is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The Black-winged Lovebird (Agapornis taranta) also known as Abyssinian Lovebird is a mainly green bird of the parrot family. At about 16.5 cm (6.5 inches) long, it is the largest of the lovebird genus, a group of small parrots. The adult male is easily identified by it red forehead, and the adult female by its all green head. They are native to Eritrea and Ethiopia, and they are uncommon as a pet. More

Black-winged Lovebirds also eat insects and figs, and the Black-collared Lovebirds have a special dietary requirement for native figs, making them problematic to keep in captivity. Some species are kept as pets, and several color mutations were selectively bred in aviculture. Their average lifespan is 10 to 15 years. More

Distribution: The Abyssinian Lovebird or Black-Winged Lovebird is native to mountainous areas and is adapted to cooler weather. From Africa, they are found in southern Eritrea and the southwestern highlands of Ethiopia. Description: The Abyssinian Lovebird has a general green plumage, though a shade lighter on the head, rump, just above the tail, and the underside. They are sexually dimorphic lovebirds, meaning the male and female are clearly different in outward appearance. More
