This shower perch made by ‘Super Bird’ is ideal for taking your samll parrot into the shower or as a perch against the mirror or window with a view. It holds securely to glass or tile surfaces with 3 suction cups and folds away easily for when not in use. It comes in white/blue as pictured, the blue section is covered in grippy sandpaper, so it doesn’t get slippery once wet. The Shower Perch is suitable for glass and smooth tiles but won’t hold on textured tiles, gaps with grout or on standard plasterboard/painted walls.
The perch measures 18cm tall (height of the vertical pipe along the wall), 26cm wide (width of horizontal pipe along the wall) and the perching part comes out 28cm from the wall, with a perchable length of 25cm.
It is a great size for small birds, like Budgies through to Indian Ringnecks. While it can also be used for larger birds, like Alexandrines, Galahs, Corellas and African Grey Parrots (with a little less room to move around), I do have larger Shower Perch options available too. For years, my 360g Corella regularly used this smaller perch, before I had the larger options available. She danced and bounced on it, putting extra pressure on the suction cups with no issues, it just didn’t have a lot of room for her to flap her wings so she is enjoying the larger size now.
Apart from perch length, the main difference between the designs are as follows:
Small – swivels smoothly and easily without modification. All 3 suction cups stay fixed to the wall. New design by Superbird means that the 3 ends (the ones by the wall) are open and not capped, water can get inside the perch and would require cleaning/emptying. The tip of the perch has a cover, with a toy hanging loop on it. The sandpaper grip is a stuck on cover, that is suitable for normal use, but not for birds who like to purposely chew up their perch.
Medium and Large – perch can be turned against the wall, but less easily. The nickel plated eyelet screw (bird safe, but able to rust) is designed to hold the perch in position and needs to be unscrewed to turn the perch. It is stiffer to turn the perch, but possible. Only the top 2 suction cups remain against the wall as the lower suction cup needs to un-suction from the wall for the perch to be turned. All ends are sealed from water getting in. There is no toy hanging link on the end. The grip is sand blasted on and a sealed cover over the whole perch, so will withstand much more chewing.
