I keep my full spectrum lights on inside my cages all day. However, the cage doors are open so the birds can choose where they want to perch....inside or outside the cage. I use a timer too and find that helpful.
BTW, window glass supposedly screens out some of the sun's light spectrum so birds don't get the full benefit of the sun by sitting in front of a window. That's why so many avian vets recommend the full spectrum bulbs for all indoor birds.
