Buy the fully adjustable floor lamp (designed for use with Zoo Med`s Avian Sun Compact Fluorescent Bulb) and the Fluorescent Bulb together and save! Provide the correct and essential UV level to allow your bird to see as nature intended!

Providing the correct levels of UVB allows birds to synthesise vitamin D3 in their skin, or through a special process involving the preening gland. Vitamin D3 is essential for proper calcium metabolism. This is necessary for normal growth, maintenance of strong bones and egg production.

Birds have specialised retinas that enable them to see UVA, helping them to recognise mates, locate food, and identify different species. Without UVA, birds are deprived of the full colour spectrum they see in nature and are colour blind. Unlock their world and let your bird see it in full colour!

UVA is essential for the psychological health of your bird. Using lighting that emits UVA can also help to curb feather picking and other destructive behaviours.

I wish I'd made the decision to buy this sooner!

It took me ages to decide which lamp would be best but I'm happy that I've made the right choice. It's taller than other models which meant I didn't need to stand it on anything to get it high enough for my cage.. The design is delicate but at the same time pretty sturdy, it is easy to move about and the swan neck and twistable lamp housing is excellent for ensuring that the light shines in exactly the right place. I was also really pleased to discover that the bulb itself doesn't give off too much heat - so I'm not too worried if the light sometimes comes on before I manage to remove the cover! Amadues seems to love it and I feel confident that I'm giving him a better quality of life with this lamp.

Better than previous version

Most of the reviews in this section, especially older ones, are of the first version of this lamp which was a flimsy, plastic, unstable, overpriced item. This new version is much, much better - the stand is metal, the base is heavy and a small footprint. Unfortunately the light cover is still plastic like the early version, but the actual stand is so much better and so adjustable. Plus the pricing is keener than the first version. All in all, this is a nice, compact type light stand which does the job even if it is still rather expensive. I think it is better than the competition.

a must have for birds kept indoors

This is the only UV lamp I could find which would reach the top of the cage and still maintain minimal safe distance from the top perch. As other users already said it's a bit wobbly but nevertheless it's a very good product.My grey is still a bit wary about the lamp and keeps away while foraging near the bottom of the cage. On the other hand, my budgie came as close as possible and started sunbathing immediately as I turned it on the first time and is doing that at least twice a day.I put the lamp on a timer to provide them both with needed UVA and UVB every day.

I was looking for a UV light but not sure of this one or the alternatives version. Put off by the alternative by exposed wires.This one has no exposed wires, and as it stands alone over the cage it is not possible for my African Grey to reach it.The light distribution is good, and flexibility of the arm of the lamp offers much option for adjustment.My cage is over 5 foot tall but the light is still tall enough to provide light from above the cage.Easy to put together and a nice looking lamp stand.Pleased with the purchase.

Sturdier than I expected based on some of the other reviews. Perfect for adding full spectrum light to my bird room. I think I may need to order another one. I have been rotating this one from cage to cage.

Sunlamp Is Great.

I ordered this as I wanted to try and prevent my Caique from plucking his feathers, within the first week, I noticed a difference with my Caique, I forgot to use the lamp one day, and Peaches, was very moody and really bad tempered, as soon as I put the lamp on, Peaches, was a different bird. I would recommend this product cause I have found it very useful for my bird and believe its on of the best things, I have brought for him.

DO not buy!

I bought a sunlamp for my 'tiels as they cannot go outside for their UV (too many avian predators around).Setting up the lamp was a hassle. My cage is a San Diego and I had to stand the lamp on top of my desk so it would be high enough for the recommended distance from the tallest perch! Getting the shield on was difficult, only when a tiny piece snapped off did I manage it! It refused to stay upright properly, leaning over so badly from it's base I had to use a Y perch to make it stay still.Get an avian lamp for your birds if they cannot access UV, but DON'T pick this one!

Reasonable Light
18th January 2011

I bought this floor standing light as it was the only one I could find anywhere. It looks okay but the springs and adjusters that keep the light fixed in a certain position need to be stronger as if even a small parrot lands on top of the light is sags down onto the cage. The light emitted does appear to be very bright and the room appears very dark during the evening after I have switched it off.

Excellent Lamp!

I am extremely pleased with this lamp. It offers perfect lighting with a wide options of placement. My CAG Koko can be quite wary of new things but when placed over her cage, she immediately got under the light and was very content. Although her cage is very tall, the lamp can be stretched and safely placed for optimum lighting. I have been looking for this type of lamp for some time and was so pleased to finally find it. Once again, Northern Parrot comes through with an innovative product.

The light is excellent - but the lamp is plastic

We have definitely seen an improvement in our Amazon's attitude and behaviour since using the Avian Sun bulbs - she plays more with her toys, eats with more enthusiasm, and has even explored the entirety of her cage; based on this experience I would definitely recommend using a light for your parrot (especially in winter).However - I was rather disappointed in the lamp itself. I wanted something more sturdy than the clip-on lights I have seen, and from the photos the 'Delux' Floor lamp seemed ideal - However, when the lamp arrived, I was very surprised to find that it is only made from plastic, and not metal as I had assumed from the pictures. Most of the fittings are simply clips or plastic screws, and the base is not particularly stable nor robustly made (it nearly fell over twice when I tried to angle the light to shine over the cage, as suggested in the pictures).The lamp works OK - but I am not convinced it will be very long lived - and I must admit to expecting something slightly more robust for nearly £100...!
