Lighting our feathered friends

I hate the government shoving these mercury filled CFL bulbs, and expecting us to pay $20.00 or more for an LED. How are youall coping. I might as well light candles they put out the same light that these do. I'm so frustrated and don't know where to turn....

I use a compact bird lamp which is flicker free for the birds' eyes.
You know humans see about 24 pictures per sec., birds see about 150.,20879

Does anyone know whether LEDs are flicker free for birds?
