African Grey and flashing light
by: Linda

Any kind of flashing light hurts the bird's eyes and this includes the television flashing. Always keep your bird back from a television at least 6 feet and possibly all the way across a large room and make sure adequate light is in the room where tv is being watched for your own eye health too.

As for flashing lights in general, they can sometimes cause people have epilectic seizures if they are prone to those.I would assume it could also happen in birds.

Where has your bird been exposed to flashing red lights? Keep him away from this kind of thing and make sure he is covered with a light cover at night and that room is shielded from any kind of flashing lights outside. We use one of the light sensitive night lights for our birds just in case something scares them during the night.

Thanks for writing,
Linda
