UVA + UVB + Visible Light!
Bring the sun indoors! Until recently, the needs of birds with respect to lighting were not well understood. We not know that birds benefit from UVB & UVA lighting!
The Avian Sun™ 5.0 UVB Compact Fluorescent provides birds with safe levels of beneficial UVB and UVA for physical and psychological health. UVB enables birds to synthesize vitamin D3 for proper calcium metabolism which is necessary for normal growth, maintenance of strong bones, and egg production. UVA is visible to birds, enabling them to recognize mates, locate food, and identify different species. Without UVA, birds are essentially colorblind!
