Default Budgie's mood swings?

Shanky( my male budgie) gets angry before going to sleep. And this only happens when i say 'good night' (they do understand that good night means it is time to sleep). He gets angry and starts hitting my other budgie. He also makes some weird noises. He usually is very playful and active. Why does his mood change suddenly during evening time?

I have noticed a couple of my more territorial birds (see hens) get like that before light's out. It appear's to me to be, this is my spot for the night, stay away posturing...

Hi Randy is perfectly correct, in a flock there is always a more dominant bird it doesn't matter how many birds are in the flock, it can be two or ten .When it comes to sleep time the more dominant bird will fight to keep the best or highest sleeping position.

I agree with Randy and Cathy.
Even Skipper and Scooter get somewhat huffy with one another as they decide who gets to sleep on which swing.

Smile Budgie

We all have to remember that budgies are family birds.Even the best of friends can fuss a little. We have a major project as our flock gets ready for bed.
Then all of a sudden there is silence. I just love our flock's personality. Thanks everyone for sharing these special moments with your FIDS . A smile is a great way to start the day. Jo Ann

As everyone has told you - a little bickering is normal.
If they aren't biting each othr and hurting one another, everything is fine. I really don't think you want to separate them, do you?
