I think the problem is solved and I had a real peaceful night sleep. Margie the Finch is free from seizures so I will keep an eye on this. I believe it was a matter of the night light and this seems to solve the problem for now. Thanks ...

So glad to hear Margie is doing well again! Had no idea a night light could be a problem.

The night light wasn't the problem. The lack of one was. They often do better when they can see a bit.

I now use a night light and this has helped where before I did not use one and the little thing I think was afraid of the dark dark dark...I'll see tonight and she seems to really like having a small light in the bird room. Success...Maybe...We will see..

My little finch seems to be doing very well. I needed a small night light for it. I also think that this is what gave it the "frights and seizures" as well. I will include a picture of it for you. Now I could be wrong but picture this in the dark with car lights every once in a while coming through the shade and hitting this towel that I used as a backdrop to the cage to keep out drafts. I could be wrong but I wanted to share this thought with you. Now if you were a birdie what would you think especially when you see the red. lol Poor Margie...Everything is calm and here is the picture..

LOL. Yes, I use a towel to cover that is of a solid cover. You learn something new all the time.
