Default Budgie attacking at bedtime

Hello. I have 2 budgies, a male and a female. The female is about a year older than the male. They get along fine. They play together, fly together, even regurgitate -I'm so glad they don't do that to me. , but a few months ago the female started attacking the male when it was bedtime. No matter where the male is, she looks for him and pecks him until he falls to the floor. And after he falls and gets back up she doesn't do it again. I've tried talking soft, singing, yelling, blowing on the female, and even moving the hoops she is sitting in to get her to stop. I didn't cover them one night too, but she still did it to him. Nothing makes a difference. My female budgie gets tunnel vision to attack the male.
Is there anything I can do to make her stop?

You might try a perch "re-do". Every one gets different perches or at least rearranging their locations in cage. She might just be territorial to where she likes to sleep....and not near her male friend. Maybe they need separate "bedrooms".

I would definitely recommend you cage the two birds separately for sleeping.

The fact that the female is SO aggressive toward the male at bedtime is extremely bad for both your male's physical and emotional well-being.

I suggest you simply get another cage and put them side by side.
When it is evening, move one of the budgies into the other cage as part of your normal routine before covering them for the night.

I separate some of my budgies every night to prevent "morning aggression".
My budgies did not fight at night but some of them were fighting each morning when they got up.
Keeping those budgies in separate cages at night and for about an hour each morning has solved the problem completely.
After their hour of being awake and in separate cages, they all get along just fine.
