Default Cute things you do for your budgies before bedtime?

I always play "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" for my Reggie and he knows them it's time for bed. It also helps relax him before it's time to sleep and have the blanket put over his cage for the night.

What cute things do you do for your budgies before bedtime?

Well, Hermes has this thing where whenever I turn off the light at bedtime, he'll blow me a kiss. So then I make a kiss noise back, he responds, and vice versa until one of us finally quits Or falls asleep, since they're in my room and I'm in my bed while all of this is happening haha.

How cute!
I always turn the lamp on or at the minute the Christmas lights. Between 7.30 and 8pm the budgies start to settle as they know this is bedtime. Then the important 'who goes on what swing' discussion starts.

That is pretty much exactly what happens here! (But not quite.) The first time I had the lamp on while they were covered they were pretty confused. They started playing around and squawking because it wasn't completely dark yet.

I'm learning to play ukulele so I'm trying to get in the habit of playing Greyjoy & Toki something soothing before bed. Usually the Adventure Time theme or The Dornishman's Wife. They hated it at first but seem to enjoy it now.

I can relate to that, kinda.
Only difference is, my guys always let me know when to turn the lamp on for them, as it gets dark here, happens very fast here in Tenerife, so they decide when I have to leave them the room and let them "duke it out", who sits where....

Funny thing is, they always end up the same place, silly buggers

Other than that, I don't really do anything "cute", just say night night guys, if I get close enough to the cage, Fido will sometimes come over real close and say night in budgie lingo, that is kinda sweet.
Well, I choose to think it's that, might as well be, go on already, I have an important thing to settle with Berty in private...

I'm a little bit confused about the "turning the lamp on" ritual...? I tend to start to turn lights off... and the ultimately all of the lights...

I always say to my little girl:

Time for bed, little bird, little bird
Close your eyes tight and don't say a word


It's from a children's book I always used to read when I was a kid!
