Squeaking sound inducing fights?

490 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  FaeryBee
At around the time the sun sets my male budgie starts making squeaking sounds at the female, and shortly after the female starts pecking at him until he gets off the swing. They do not fight in the day time but this happens every night. But I am interested in what the squeaking sounds mean, as they seem to always happen before a fight.

Would it be possible to get a video of this so that we can hear it?
Some budgies seem to get territorial at night, try putting a second swing in the cage and see if that makes any difference.
