Default Sleep

My budgie, Jakob, is about 4.5 months old now and has lived in my home for 6 weeks. He settled in very quickly and is incredibly tame. He's only in a cage when I'm away and at night, so he gets lots of time outside the cage and he loves that.

Over the last week or two, I've noticed he sometimes seems scared when he wakes up in the morning. Several days when I've taken his cover off, he's been clinging on to the side of the cage, and you can tell by the dropping under him that he's spent all night like that. He won't move until I extend a finger for him to step on to, and even then he'll appear quite frightened.

Last night I covered him cage and stayed in the room. I turned the lights off, but I left a small lamp on. I did that the night before as well. Before going to bed, I looked in, and he was once again clinging on to the side of the cage. I got him down, petted him for a while, then left him on a low perch. He was still there this morning, but it took him a while to move - he's usually be quite excited to get on his swing first thing...

Sorry for the long essay, but I could use some advice here on what to do. I'm worried it stresses him to be clinging on to the cage. It's been very windy outside the last week or so, and you can hear that inside. Could that be the problem? Any other suggestions? Do I leave a small lamp on or not?

Some of my birds will sleep that way for some reason. Though they aren't skittish in the morning.

do you have a perch high in the cage?.. Most of my birds will sleep on a high perch, if there isn't one high enough they sleep on the side of the cage.

Thank you, J.W. - you've no idea how happy I am to hear that. Guess there mightn't be anything wrong then. Yes he does have a perch up really high in the cage, and that's where he used to sleep. He used to jump up there the minute I arrived with his cover, but the last week has just been different. As long as he's not stressed, he can sleep on the side of the cage if that's what he likes
