Mine are SO CONFUSED!!! It got dark so early and went I went upstairs at 6 pm to get Gus- he was in his Happy Hut!!!! He peeked his head out and gave me this confused look.
Summer is a little weird about it too! She didn't yell when I went up there!

Poor things!!

Anyone else notice a difference in their birds?!

I don't like it either.

My biggest beef with it is that it seems that it goes from being light out to suddenly being dark at 4pm and it happens SO fast! But it feels like it takes FOREVER to reverse it!!

Mine don't like it either. Tango was in his hut sleeping at 6pm tonight and they can't figure out why I am sleeping so late :)

I haven't noticed a difference, yet. Cookie seems to be going to bed at the same time..

But me? it confuses me! i'm used to it being pitch dark out when i wake up and get ready - i have to turn all the lights on! and this morning it was light and i was like, woaah! i'm gonna be late!

My little Poppet started to call for me at her usual time & I'm like what? Then it dawned on me she is still on spring time! She is now happy on my shoulder preening. :heart:

I control when the lights go out so no problem at night, they were up earlier this morning, I didn't notice it yesterday though.

I need to change the bulbs in my bird room... because when it gets dark you can definitely tell.. I bought the "natural" daylight bulbs for the bird room and I really don't like them :(

that is a bit nuts.

I cross time zones if I drive an hour east into Indiana or Michigan. It's seriously a pain to realize that it's NOT the time you thought it was!

I have super bright fluorescent lights in the bird room that I turn on when the sun starts to set. It totally works. I stay up late and wake up late so I have the birdies on a weird schedule anyway.

My birds seemed ready to go to bed earlier last night but I kept them up until regular bed time. Just getting darker earlier seems they are more settled in the evening.

Little Simba my sun was screaming to go to bed at 6pm also. I tried to keep him up later, but he says no way. I feel lucky though, cause he stays asleep until I get up, at least that wasn't an hour earlier. I don't like it either.
