Yes, that’s my recent chest X-ray (above) with a window backlight display. Why did I keep it?

I currently have a reptile light screwed into a pole lamp that sits next to my lessor sulfur-crested cockatoo’s main hangout.
I would like to upgrade after reading your column on lighting recently.
I’m concerned that if I put a light on top of the cage, Zoey will chew on the wire.
There’s also a tray on the top of her cage that would block the light.
She hangs out on the topmost of the time when I’m home.
She’s inside when I leave.
Would you advise replacing the reptile bulb with a different type of light? Please offer any suggestions to improve my bird’s light needs.
Here’s what we did for our FIDs Mary.
BTW – we recommend you remove the tray on the top of the cage and let the light in.
