Odd sleeper

I'm not sure if I've posted a picture of this before or not, but Thomas and I were talking about it again this morning, so I took a picture.  Basil is the strangest sleeper ever!  All the rest of my parrots have a sleep perch -- usually the highest perch in their cage -- where they spend the night.

Basil, however, clings to his cage bars, on either side of a corner:
I can't imagine this is comfortable, at least not compared to a rope perch!  I must add that he spends his days perched on normal perches -- it's only at night when he goes to the cage bars.  Also, when he naps, he does so on a perch.

What a funny guy!

There was a time when Conner would sleep just like that at the top of the cage. I put in a perch that is so high that he has to crouch to stand on it and he sleeps on that now. Weirdo.

My Sennie sleeps like that frequently.

I have a Fischer LoveBird that does that or did that for a year , Now he sleeps in a on a little snuggle hut. Still a very Shy insecure bird . In my experience this is the way birds that would normally sleep in holes in trees , sleep when in cages

Basil is so adorable I don't care how he sleeps!
