Budgie Professionalism (or Lack Thereof)

All animals have a job to do, and do it with pride.  For example, the parental cat (Nikko) patrols his turf daily.   He also must bring back any creatures caught, to share with his human pride.

Budgies have a very important job; greeting the day.  Every morning, it is their job to sing and chirp and greet the morning.  Also it is their job to be active and prepare for nightfall.

This morning, we had to awaken without the budgies.  No songs, nothing.  It was quite rainy, and the budgies just didn't bother getting up to greet the day.  We had to walk downstairs and talk to them to even get any chirps.

Professionalism?  These budgies are slipping!

Maybe they're taking a vacation.
Can budgies change a circadian rhythm set-point?

Thanks for the update.

That is a good idea! I hadn't thought of that. Those hard working birds deserve a break now and then, gosh darn it!
