Underscores are not good to use in URLs as search engines do not treat it as a space or delimiter. So Love_Bird would be considered Lovebird. I believe search engines have gotten better at figuring out when a word like this should be two words, but the best practice for this is to use hyphens (e.g. Love-Bird).
