Wingabago Bird Carrier
The Large Wingabago® The Small Wingabago®
The lightweight, transparent Wingabago® carrier for birds and exotic pets gives your pet a clear view of their surroundings and allows you to monitor their safety quickly. Birds do not feel trapped or claustrophobic in the Wingabago®. They can see out and you can see in. Veterinarians consulted indicated bird experience less stress during travel if they can see their owners.
The Wingabago® is made of FDA approved, food grade plastic, which is stronger, more resilient and lighter weight than acrylic carriers of similar size.
The Wingabago® is designed for birds by bird owners. Some important features are:
The Wingabago® is more than just a travel carrier. In addition to travel, the Wingabago® can be used for a number of other purposes:
The Wingabago® comes with everything you will need. Both size carriers come with 3 dowel perches (3/4”, 1”, and 1 ¼” diameter), 2 stainless steel food and water cups, the all important toy hangar, and a travel safety guide.

What size do I need?
The Small Wingabago® measures 12 x 12 x 17, and weighs less than seven pounds. The perch sits 4” above the bottom of the carrier. The small Wingabago® is the right size for small birds like Cockatiels, Senegal Parrots, Caiques, Quaker Parrots, Green Cheek, Sun and Nanday Conures and other similar size birds.
The Large Wingabago® measures 15 x 15 x 22, and weighs less than nine pounds. The perch sits 6” above the bottom of the carrier. The large Wingabago® is the right size for Cockatoos, including Moluccans, and Mini Macaws. The large Wingabago® is not recommended for full size Macaws. It is not big enough to accommodate the long tail.
For medium size birds like Amazons, African Greys, Eclectuses, and smaller Cockatoos, either size will work. It all depends on how you will use it. If your primary use is to transport your bird for short trips to the vet and around town, we recommend the small Wingabago®. IF you would like to take your bird on vacation with you, we recommend the large Wingabago®. It gives them more room.
To give you an idea here are a couple of pictures of our Amazon, Buster, in both the small and large carrier. Buster is a large Amazon.

Can the Wingabago® be used for air travel?
Yes. With the optional stainless steel wire door, the Wingabago® complies with airline cargo regulations. Your bird can travel in their Wingabago® in cargo. The carrier is too large to travel in the main cabin. Each airline has different rules and regulations, so please contact the individual airlines before you fly.
For those of you who say “I’d never put my bird in cargo” you need to consider that sometimes the only alternative would be to give your bird way. What would be more traumatic to these intelligent, bonded family members—a few hours in a pressurized, climate controlled cargo hold or the loss of your family for the rest of its life?
Comments from a few customers:
“My bird and I both love the Wingabago® carrier. He’s like a little king in it. Before, when we went anywhere, he used to scream so it was painful for both of us. I think it’s the best carrier I’ve seen.” J.M. (owned by a Conure and an African Grey)
“If you are considering investing in a quality carrier for your parrot, don’t waste your money on others like I did – the Wingabago® is the only way to go! Traveling with my Grey used to be major trauma and drama until I purchased the Wingabago®. Now going places is stress free for both of us, thanks to this carrier that is as stylish as it is functional. It is worth every penny, and I highly recommend the Wingabago® to all bird owners.” M.G. (owned by an African Grey)
“My Moluccans did great flying from Hawaii to Oregon in cargo. They barely had a feather out of place and weren’t even shaking!!!” D.S. (owned by two Moluccans who are military kids)
“The Wingabago® is the greatest product. We have now eliminated all bird rage. He looks forward to getting into his Wingabago®. He loves it! New Year’s Eve he was able to go onto the screened lanai with everyone and enjoy the party. It was cool, but he was protected in his Wingabago®. Every time someone came, he said, ‘Hello’ and danced to the music.” G.S. (owned by a Timneh Grey)
“The Wingabago® has arrived! What a perfect product! Hannah is usually somewhat nervous of new things, but not her new Wingabago®. She’s ready to go – and in style! Thanks for a quality product, super fantastic service, and for making my parrot comfortably mobile!” R.D. (owned by an African Grey)
“Archie loves his carrier. Before, he used to cry all the way to and from the vet. Today, he just sat and looked all around. He’s a very happy guy!” G.S. (owned by an African Grey)
"You’ll be happy to hear that Chief and your Wingabago® made the trip just fine! He’s doing well now, but he had to endure a lot over the 2 flights – including 5 hours layover in L.A. and another hour at Frankfurt, Germany customs office when we arrived.”
Note: Chief is a Moluccan Cockatoo military kid who made the trip from Hawaii to Germany. He traveled in cargo as required on most international flights.
