Question No cover during transport, yay or nay?

I will take Caleb and Houdini to a friend's house and they have been there before. Last time I took them in their own cage but as she looked a bit TOO frigthened when I tried to cover 3 sides with a bed sheet I quickly gave up and just took the cage as it is. I put them on the passenger seat and spoke to them during the 10 minutes journey.

They are only a little tamed so I'm not too sure if it makes a difference if they can see me or hear me.

Does it stress them seeing things moving fast outside the car windows?
Would anybody know the difference in level of distress with or without cover when they are inside the car?

They are not covered over night, they just sleep with a small wake light.

when I transported mine, the cage was really too big to cover, plus it was warm out.

I do drape something over the cage when I expect drafts. I am not too worried about what the sights might be.

Default Cover

From my slot experience with these lovely birds i would suggest draping cages with cloths or something would be better because they are fast and prey birds so the traffic somewhere or high speeds can cause trouble boosting them to fly here n there in panic inside that cage and could get hurt so its better to cover up the cage and do the transport things...
They'll feel uncomfortable at first but just in a minute or two they will come at complete peace! :-)
and yes your birds are beautifull.. ;-)

Evita,

As long as the budgies are not in a drafty situation, having the cage uncovered is just fine.
I generally cover the top and three sides of my bird's cage in the car but it is really not necessary as long as the car is neither too warm nor too cold.
