How do lovebirds sleep in a cage?

Lovebirds Like Being Tucked in at Bedtime In the wild, lovebirds get their rest in trees and cacti with cozy holes that they enter when it’s time to catch some shut-eye. Many lovebird keepers have a separate nighttime cage and move the lovebird to that location when it is time to sleep.

Do lovebirds need to be covered at night?

As long as a dark, quiet and somewhat secluded area is provided for a bird to sleep in, most will be fine without being covered at night.

Do lovebirds like music?

Lovebirds don´t typically ¨dance¨ or bob along with the music. I got the usual response – flock calling and a general racket. But, if I start singing, clicking my fingers, gently clapping or tap the desk along to the beat, they fall quite silent and watch me.
