Birdie night light

I like to keep a night light on for my birds at night, with warmer weather we have been keeping our bedroom door open at night or it is way to hot... Hubby can't sleep with the light on so he turns it off and the we get night frights from the birds. I am hoping I have found a solution. I found solar lights similar to these ... http://img1.targetimg1.com/wcsstore/...1406031444.jpg ... I am going to zip tie them to the top front corner of the bird cage to gently illuminate it and see how they work. No remembering to turn on or off. Hope they work !!

That light looks pretty cool!

I use a regular night light, like for kids, and keep it right next to the cage with a light cotton fabric over the cage so they can still see but aren't like blinded by it. It's helped with night frights so far (*fingers crossed*)

Awesome! I use the small plug in ones in the outdoor bird room. One above some of the breeding cages and one right next to the aviaries

I don't have an easily reached plug for a night light near the cages, I put these on the cages last night and they worked awesome! The best part is that I don't have to do anything, they turn themselves on and off. I found them on sale for $2.10 each, so did all 4 of my cages for under $10.00!!

I don't use night lights with the birds, the moon and stars' coming in through the window seems to be enough for them. For one thing, my tiels only had night frights when there was a light shining on them at night and, for another, there are too many studies that indicate their endocrine system goes out of whack when they get light at night (even very faint light does it, apparently).
