Description

With Wingdow® Loft, you can add a second level perch above your Wingdow® Seat--or simply use the perch as a way to hang entertaining toys, swings, etc. overhead while your bird is using the Wingdow® Seat.  If hanging the perch underneath the Loft ceiling, select the perch length that gives your size bird the most head room.  If installing the perch above the Loft ceiling, select the perch height based on tail length.  Choose a standard hardwood dowel for your perch--or upgrade to a Dragonwood, Manzanita, or textured PVC perch.

Perch Type

Our standard perch assembly comes standard with a smooth, appropriately-sized hardwood dowel perch.  However, for customers who prefer perches with more interest and texture, we also offer three additional natural wood and synthetic options.  All Dragonwood and Manzanita we use for Wingdow® Seat perches are untreated and harvested in the United States by trusted vendors—so you can be assured it is safe for your bird.  Our textured PVC perches are similarly made in the USA by a manufacturer we trust.

 

Hardwood Dowel.  Our standard perch is a smooth dowel made of white birch hardwood.  Birch is an attractive, fine-grained hardwood, popular among bird product manufacturers and bird owners alike for its safety and durability.
Dragonwood is a hardwood that grows in the American Southeast (mostly Florida)--and our personal favorite natural wood perch for all of our products.  We like it because it's indestructible like Manzanita--yet has a thin, textured outer bark that is less slippery and easier for birds to grip than Manzanita.  A lot of our customers seem to prefer it over Manzanita as well.

Manzanita is small evergreen tree native to the American West, Mexico, and Western Canada.  Its dense, indestructible hardwood core and attractive reddish-purple outer skin have made it a longtime favorite wood for bird perches and gyms.  In addition to its durability, Manzanita is impermeable--which makes it easy to clean--and a good choice for your perch if you plan to use it in the shower.  On the downside, its smooth surface makes it slippery and harder for your bird to grip than other wood choices.

Textured PVC.  We use tough, construction-grade, American-made PVC tubing and rough up the surface to give it texture/make it easier to grip.  Very easy to clean and dishwasher-safe.  A good choice if you plan to use your perch in the shower.

 

Perch Size

Select your perch diameter based on the size of the bird that will be using it.  The small/medium diameter works best for most birds using the medium Wingdow®.  However, if you intend to use the medium Wingdow® for a larger (Grey/Amazon-size) bird, make sure to select the large diameter.

The hardwood dowel and textured PVC perch options come in standard diameter.  However, because Dragonwood and Manzanita are natural wood, large and small/medium diameters will vary.
