Default Curious (But cute) bedtime behaviour

Hey, this is both an update on Techno a budgie I got and posted about in this thread a while ago now and a bit of a question.

He's doing fantastic, full of energy, imitating english with stuff like "Techno, Technoooo!" and "What're ya doin?". He seems like quite the happy bird, just to preface I'm not concerned in any way about this behavior, it's just a cute curiosity I wanted to know if anyone had any insight on or have similar instances;

When I cover Techno's cage at night with a towel, Techno will always, and I mean always, ding the bell behind his favorite perch.

He in fact goes out of his way to ding the said bell, if he was napping he'll notice me approaching with the blanket and bound over to the bell to ding it. Usually dinging it once before covering, and once again after covering before finally going quiet.

It always makes me smile buuut I'm just curious if anyone has any insight into why he does that? Is it some sort of protest to being covered or maybe he's just pining for some kind of sound before settling in? I'm really not sure, I doubt it's anything to be concerned about he's been doing this for a while now.

Just wanted to know if anyone had seen something similar.

It is simply Techno's acknowledgement that it's time for bed!
Budgies are wonderful, aren't they?
I have one that always jumps on his swing, then onto the side of the cage and then back onto his swing when he sees the cage cover coming.
It's his little way of saying, "Night now, Mom!"

I think he is saying good night to his bell buddy One of my birds used to do a similar thing but not at night. He had 2 small bells in his cage, and is out of the cage most of the day, but he would fly into cage ding one bell and then the other and fly out again. He would do this whenever he entered the cage as if to let the bells know he was there. He became obsessed with his reflection in the bells so I had to remove them.

Techno sounds really cute! I agree with the others that he's just made it part of his bedtime routine.
My Cloud is still a baby and when he sees the cover coming, he starts to hop around his perches like "Look! I'm not even tired!!" even if he was just dozing on his perch seconds earlier. It takes him a couple of minutes after the cover is on to give up and I've noticed a couple of nights this week where he's rung his bell too before settling on his sleepy time perch.
