The Urban Zoo understands why many people are attracted to birds as pets. Birds have several desirable characteristics, ranging from their different colours and sizes, to their own distinct breed-specific behaviours and specialized abilities.
If you are searching for a melodic bird, canaries will sweeten your day with a cheerful song, whereas, finches will fill your world with soothing murmurs. Budgies and cockatiels are playful birds, who are enjoyable interactive companions, they will delight you with their intelligence and amusing antics. Other birds, such as the Macaws, African Grays and Cockatoos are the larger exotic birds. These bigger exotic birds require a strong commitment from pet owners due to their longevity but the fruits of your labor will be rewarded, with an 'almost' lifetime of loyal friendship!
The bird lover's quest is to light upon a complimentary feathered friend. Finding the best bird for your lifestyle involves a great deal of thought since bird behaviours and personalities vary as much as that of humans. Once customers have researched their particular bird and its needs, our competent staff will be pleased to suggest our various bird care products for pet nurturing.

THE MULTI-FUNCTIONAL CARRIER SYSTEM
The Vision® Home for Birds continues the "less mess" tradition of bird cage
design pioneered by the original Vision® Living Space for Birds.
As we all know birds, while making wonderful companions, can be quite
messy. Their movements cause air currents which, in the case of most
standard bird cages, cause waste, feathers and seed debris to be ejected from
the cage and onto the floor.
In the case of the Vision® Home for Birds, the combination of debris guard,
deep base and the placement of the seed/water cups help combat air currents
to keep the majority of the waste and debris inside the cage. This reduces the
amount of mess and the time-consuming clean ups associated with bird
keeping, leaving you more time to enjoy your pet.
Vision® Home for Birds are available in single home and tall home
models, with each model available in Small, Medium and Large sizes. To find out more,

The Parrot University
The Parrot University Can a parrot, designed by nature for millions of years, be truly mentally and physically healthy without flight?
The Parrot University has spent 20 years researching what makes a parrot a parrot. We have found the number one characteristic that defines "a parrot" is its ability to fly. Flight is fundamental to every component of a parrot's mind and body.
Learning to fly well is the most complicated and important task a parrot can learn. Your pet will be healthier, more active, more coordinated, and increase its' visual acuity. Flying helps with language development, higher intelligence, self-confidence, self-esteem and ultimately makes a very social companion.
