Conclusion: budgies naturally are "morning persons"! After a long night's sleep, they feel rested and ready to start the day. Budgies in the wild start their day at sunrise and go to bed when darkness falls over the lands. I recognize this pattern in a lot of domesticated budgies, including my own. Well, that's a good thing, because the early bird catches the worm, as they say!

If your budgie is more like an "evening person", it could simply be because you are too! Did you know that budgies do their best to adapt to your sleeping rhythm? When you are keeping them awake all night, they have to catch up during the day, while most budgies would be flying around. Keep in mind that budgies need 10-12 hours of sleep every night.
