The Vision Medium Bird Cage #M02 is a suitable cage for budgies, canaries, lovebirds and finches. It provides your bird with lots of room to move around and Vision makes it easy for you to take care of your bird. Bird movements cause air currents, which flow outwards, and in the case of most standard bird cages these air currents eject waste and seed debris outside of the cage and onto the floor. With Vision Cages, the combination of the debris guard, the deep base and the placement of the seed/water cups helps combat air currents to keep the majority of the waste and debris inside the cage. This reduces the amount of mess and time-consuming clean ups, leaving you more time to enjoy your pet. The Vision Medium Bird Cage is a great home for your new bird.

Building is most definitely not a 5 minute affair as some internet instructions state. I won't go into detail but just take your time and read the instruction manual AND the booklet. Also take care to look closely at the pictures and the exploded picture views. The main picture on the front of the box helps too.Just take care because some things clip and some things slide closed, don't force anything. It says it tool free but I couldn't push open the white side cage clips without using something to do so because my finger nails are too short. The clips were tough to open. If you've got mobility issues or arthritis you will possibly need help.
The cage itself is enormous for a canary/finch/budgie/parrotlet sized bird. It has a grate bottom which is a lift off style with no tray. I was bothered about this because it's homing a wild goldfinch that had it's wing ripped off by a magpie (short story below review). Even with one functional wing its fast, so the lifting off the base concerned me. I shouldn't have worried because it lifts off easily when the bird is at the top of the cage. I just pop it onto a solid base until cleaning is done. The cage is a bit top heavy when you lift it off the base so take care. The local newspaper fits the grate perfectly too.
I'm also not sure about the low down water and feed containers so I've purchased some stainless ones to put into the cage higher up and one I can turn into a forage bowl with grasses and hidden seeds/treats etc. I've also purchased some extra wooden branch style perches. The supplied plastic ones are okay and have different diameters along the length. The bird also needs a bit of help because it tends to jump more than fly.
The doors are brilliant opening in and out forming a platform if you let your bird out.
Overall I can most definitely recommend this cage. It's very sturdy and well equipped and large!
unbelievable goldfinch story:
My wife and I were looking out of the window at the feeders when a magpie darted at the feeder. Feathers flew everywhere. We didn't know at the time but the magpie had grabbed a goldfinch in the feeder. The magpie returned and feathers went everywhere again so I went out to take a look at what had happened.
To my horror there was a goldfinch hanging lifeless from the feeder with blood dripping off it. I picked up the tiny body and it twitched so I knew it wasn't dead. I carried it into the house, washed off the blood and saw the damaged wing. All of the primaries were missing as was part of the wing and flesh from under the wing. I held it and kept it warm in my hands for a couple of hours. It started to revive but couldn't hold its head up. I placed it into a container in the dark and kept it warm.
The next morning it was alive but unable to move so I gave it some water off a cotton bud. Over the next week or two it started to move about and eat/drink on its own. I kept my distance so it could recover and hopefully be set free again. I purchased a cheap cage for its stay and placed her outside where she can see her friends. They visit her every day!
Fast forward two months and she's apparently 99% recovered. Feathers have grown back, the flesh under her wing has healed. It's time to let her go.
I decided to set her free in the meadow across the road where her friends sit. I open my hands and she leaps 10ft and crashes, she cant fly. I couldn't catch her again so decided it was her fate. I saw her later that night hopping across the field where I'd left some nyger seed out.
The next day she was missing, and the next. I couldn't stop thinking about what had happened to her, dead or alive, magpie, cat or fox killed her. The following morning my wife and I sat drinking a coffee and chatting about wether or not the she survived. About 20 seconds later a goldie hopped onto front garden about a foot from our window at sat looking in. My wife jokingly said it was her paying us a visit, as she turned I could see that she had the same first primary missing. It was her! I went out and just picked her up.
I know a free bird should be free but she cant fly. I'd rather have her alive in the new vision cage than dead in a few days because she can't fly, I can't bring myself to euthanise her because she now only hops and jumps. She only has one primary feather missing and should be able to fly, the magpie must have damaged something else where it tore the flesh away. She appears to be content enough and active and loves the extra space in this cage. I'll try to see if she can fly in another couple of months but I'll try her inside a hall or something so I can catch her if she crash lands.
I set her free on 01/01/19 she flew away into the trees across from us. Six weeks later she still comes to the feeders in our garden. She's now integrated into the large 60+ flock that visit us daily. I still recognise her from a couple of damaged feather areas that didn't moult correctly. She's getting harder to spot now, once she moults I'll never see her again. I think it's time to put the binoculars away.
Apart from one issue I will always have this particular make for birds suitable to live in. Had this one a long time and still looks and works great.
The issue revolves around the cleaning due to the fact that you have to physically move the cage to one side after unclipping the bottom. This may not be a problem for many if you have space available anyhow around the cage. Again if you have a cage hanger stand no problem. My solution was to actually hang the cage from the ceiling with small chain and probably not ideal for most but suitable in my case. Other than this little adaptation I am more than happy having these setups.
P.S. bought another now for a parrotlet so...
What I love about these cages is that they are so easy to clean and prevent a lot mess (but not all) on the floor. I have re-used my Medium Vision Stand which is a perfect fit and the same cage liners fit too. So far no regrets about purchasing another Vision cage, but I will post again if any problems.
Although smaller than i expected, my lovebirds seem happy enough,also very easy to clean out.
our local pet super store has the small version in for £65 so this is a real bargain
