Hi
Ive recently noticed that our female (I think) kakariki has begun roosting at the bottom of my aviary. She had been roosting on a log and tonight she was under a bush. She is perfectly fine during the day and doesnt seem to clash with the other kak or scarlets or quail
Is this anything to be worried about or is she just a bit odd ??
Thanks
Josh

is it a pair of scartets?
im not familar with them, but if anything like turqs and lesser degree like burkes.....these can be terroriial, thu we have not had issues that way unless a nesting box present.
The turq in particular must have very good dim light vision, as these are the last flicking around the flight before resting.....and can disturb the other birds tucking down for the night.
With 10+ birds in the comunty flight and been together for a very long time, it doesnt disturb the other birds any more.

Do a bit of research on scarlets, see if they are active in the evening, dusk and late dusk.
