Zoo Med's Avian Sun 5.0 self ballasted compact fluorescent lamp provides birds with safe levels of beneficial UVB and UVA for physical and psychological health. Energy saving bulb uses only 26 watts and screws into any incandescent socket.


  • 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
  • Using lighting that emits UVA can help curb feather picking and other destructive behaviors
  • Without UVA, birds are deprived of the full color spectrum they see in nature and are colorblind
  • For best results, use in Zoo Med's AvianSun Deluxe Floor Lamp

UVB Light bulb for birds
UV bulb not included, understandable. Still, it works good since my parrot doesn't get much sun light during the day when I'm at work.
ProsGood for feathers and warmth too.

Awesome light!
Love this light. I never used any lighting unit before but i noticed that my parakeet was kind of lethargic during the winter months. So i purchased this light and the fixture. Really works great and he seems happier and more energetic.
ProsWorks great

you need more than just this light.
When i bought this light bulb,(it helps with feather plucking) i thought i could just use it in my ceiling light fixture, and yes it will fit in that, but it needs its own light fixture to do any good for the bird, because it needs to be 18 to 20 inches away from the bird, in the ceiling fixture its like 4ft. from the bird, but im still using it in the ceiling, so between the bird spray i bought and this light bulb , something is working for the bird, because there is new feather growth on him.
ProsFits in standard light socket.
ConsDidnt give enough directions on how it should be used, only after i purchased it, it told how to use it.
