The use of a light source that mimics the natural UV content of sunlight has recognized health benefits, and provides birds with a more natural view their surroundings, encouraging natural behaviour and in many cases improved breeding results.
Unlike normal fluorescent lamps, the Arcadia Bird Lamp uses special UV emitting phosphors to replicate the spectral pattern of sunlight with 12% of the total light output emitted as UV-A and 2.4% UV-B.
UV-lighting boosts a parrot’s wellbeing
Whether you own a pet African Grey parrot or a budgie, or you have a whole room dedicated to breeding birds, avian lighting can be used very effectively and greatly benefit birds. But, you as the keeper will also benefit by being able to view your birds in a totally new way. You may notice fluorescent patches and colours that you have never seen before – the effects of the lamps are dramatic and varying.
Apart from the vital aspects of UVlighting discussed in parts I and II, birds preen more readily, moult with less issues, produce more viable chicks and live long happy lives with strong bones. Song birds sing more and parrots seem to scream less. It may all sound too good to be true! Certainly bird lighting is not a cure-all by far, but the right bird lighting system certainly helps to keep birds in peak condition and helps them reproduce more readily, but UVlighting is only one part of the arsenal we need, to perpetuate aviculture.
Using the right type of lamp
The Arcadia bird lamp has been specifically designed to allow captive birds to use both UVA and UVB in the way that nature intended. This lamp has been designed to emit visible light at a colour, we call ‘full spectrum+ UV.’ Standard full spectrum lamps should not be confused with full spectrum+ UV lamps. The term ‘full spectrum’ simply refers to the colour of the light the lamp produces.
A standard ‘full spectrum’ and even some of the SAD lamps, produce a colour of light that is very close to natural daylight. They have a very high CRI (colour rendition index), and in simple terms these lamps allow keepers to see their birds in the best possible way, within the limitations of human vision. But, these lamps do not emit UV-rays.
It is important that UVA and UVB are provided in the correct ratios. We advise that a lamp fitted correctly near the bird should emit 12 per cent UVA and 2.4 per cent UVB. I have seen some bird lamps that have a high UVA content which is useful, but only produce half of one per cent UVB, which is not enough for birds to utilise.
It is vital to fit lamps correctly as UV cannot travel far and the further the light is from the bird the weaker the exposure will be. A bird lamp fitted 1m (3ft) above an enclosure would be of very little use to a captive bird as the percentage of UVB available at perch level would be minimal. It is essential that all light sources are placed above the bird. A bright light source hitting the bird side on can cause eye irritation, which can lead to infection. Protect your birds by fitting the lamp above the perch.

Buzz loves it

The light and stand came quickly and were well packaged. My African Grey Parrot used it right away. I placed it above the area in his cage that he uses to perch and rest. He seems to really enjoy it and it gives me peace of mind that I can provide him with a much needed resource since he does not have the benefit of direct sunlight.
My birds love it

This lighting system at 24 watts is almost twice the power of my previous system. The light is noticeably better and my 2 lovebirds have been basking and preening in the light all morning. They are definitely happier. I'll leave it on 4 hours every morning - on a timer. Was easy to set up.
