Birdy jetlag

Hi all,
I'm moving out west for a job this summer and will be bringing Kuzco the lovebird with me. I've got a direct flight, the perfect carrier, and called the airport to request a private search room so I don't have to carry him in my hand through the metal detector.
I'm wondering what will happen once we land. It'll be the longest he's been away from his budgie friends, but he has travelled without them before. Plus, there's a 4 hour time difference, so he'll be 4 hours behind his current schedule. Is there a good way to help him deal with this? Should I change his schedule slowly, or switch to the new time zone immediately? I know with people, you're supposed to ignore the fact that you're tired/awake and follow the local schedule anyway because it helps the jet lag, but what about birds? We'll be there for about 8 weeks and I want to make sure he has the best time possible.

Nala , Chip , and Kuzco
