Question Daylight Savings Time Confusion

I wonder if any of your birds are experiencing similar stresses during our current time change this autumn. Sweetheart is definitely confused!

I think the confusion will start later tonight for Banana. She likes to go to her cage when it gets dark and she winds down getting ready for sleep. I suspect she will want to wind down a little earlier tonight and that's not good because it will be close to 5pm ... and that's wayyy too early for the lil gal to go to sleep. I suppose I can light up the room with more lights and make it more noisy in the room and give her the impression its not sleep time but I know her well.

She complains when she wants to go to sleep. She will sit on a perch and mumble and talk to herself in a bit of a huff. It will be interesting to see how this develops tonight.

Keep me posted on how Sweets reacts over the week. It will be interesting to see how our birds like DST's.

Sweetheart still knows that when 7:30 PM comes around that it is time for bed. She waits patiently on her top perch looking a little gloomy when the cover has not been placed around her cage on time. J. asks her, "Want to go to bed?" And she often gives him "the look" before ruffling her feathers, as if to say, "What do you think?" and sometimes even adds a chirp to show her enthusiasm for sleepy-time.



We turn down the lights, and turn down the volume on the TV (it is in the same room as her cage) but if we still are happening to be chatting about things -- she will rattle around in her cage, or chirp loudly in protest: "Keep it down, you two!"


I'm not sure about if/how her morning routine has changed -- it is J. who comes downstairs from our upstairs bedroom, to make sure the heaters are at a constant, comfortable temperature for Sweetheart, and to take off her night cover to prepare her for a new day.
