Can birds sleep with lights on?

Do birds need dark to sleep? Should leave a light on for birds at night?


Love birds on a branch in a big cage

Birds need a dark and quiet environment to sleep well. Just like humans light is a stimulus that affects bird’s sleep. It is the instinct of birds to stay awake at light and sleep at night. Keeping lights on will keep a bird awake. Still, a dim light can help birds from thrashing around by hearing any unexpected sounds or movements near the cage.
