Instead of sleeping on one of her perches, she climbs into the very top right corner of the cage, clings ... there instead. Anyone know if there's a particular reason she might be doing this? She's an otherwise healthy, happy bird.

My budgie used to do the EXACT same thing, and it drove us all crazy too cus it was right over her water dish, eventually she grew out of it

my parrot sleeps in a Happy Hut at the top of the cage in the corner. She loves it in there. They cost under ten dollars, maybe you could buy one and see if your budgie likes it.

Probably not a good idea with Sally. She' can get broody - I don't want to give her something that would look like an obvious nesting hole/site to her. I have enough problems with her getting underneath the sanded sheet on the bottom of her cage and laying eggs...

They also sell something called a Buddy, which is made of fake fur and just hangs on the side of the cage and the bird nuzzles next to it for warmth or security. Mika uses that in the summer, usually.

What a fuckin' dumb-ass question.
My budgies sometimes do that as well. Not on the purpose, seem so that when they think there is not enough room on the perches they will go into the 'bat mode'. Usually when I turn off the lights they are all on the perches and someone start to fight (usuall bed ritual) so weaker bird end up on the side of the aviary. I usually wait an hour after I turn off the light, then turn it on again and help the hanging bird to find the free place on the perches. It usually get on my finger and allow me to carry it to the perch.
