These two are a real pair of love birds after one smooth parrot landed on some telephone cables and quickly made its move on another feathered friend.

As Lubov Bogopolskaya watched on from below in Miami Beach, Florida, USA, on July, 5 two seemingly unknown birds sat apart on power lines.

Finally deciding to make his move, one parrot begins to walk over to the cables to snuggle up closer to his prospective mate.

Cuddling up to the green feathered fowl and resting its head on its shoulders, the poultry pair even appear to make a heart shape from underneath.

Lubov said: “It was very heart-warming to watch this love story begin.

“The two parrots had landed just before I started filming and I thought a whole flock was going to turn up.

“I had no idea they were love birds at first but it was very cute to see.

“In the end, they must have stayed for another minute before flying off together.”
