Yesterday evening I left my house for about 4 hours in the early evening. It was just before dusk and I left the window shutters open so Tweetie Pie could enjoy the sunset. I left lights on and the radio playing. When I got home, he was clutching the cage bars at the top right corner and wouldn't move while I was talking to him. I didn't see anything amiss in or around his cage. I moved his cage to a spot by my easy chair. I put my finger in at his feet to try to persuade him to come down. He opened his beak like he was going to bite me so I stopped - that obviously wasn't helping. I put his cover on leaving the front open. I sat talking to him while watching TV the rest of the evening. When I went to bed, I left a light on for him and put on budgie sounds all night. This morning he was still clutching the bars at the top of his cage. I got my coffee, turned off the budgie sounds and then turned on the radio station I usually have playing. He climbed down to his top perch. The only thing different about yesterday is that I removed the dowel type perch he usually sleeps on and replaced it with two bottle brush wood branches. This happened early in the day and when I left he was happily sitting on one of them. What happened to frighten him so much? Wild animal or cat outside the window? His/cage reflection in the window? What should I do today to get back to normal? What do I do if I leave in the evening in the future? My poor baby was so upset and I was also.
