    Cockatiels enjoying out of cage time, but then freak out?

    What can I do then? My old birds never spooked so often.

    It's not at night though. It's during the day when they're out and about.

    Cockatiels enjoying out of cage time, but then freak out?

    Thats the thing. Has far as I'm aware there isn't any outside stimuli. Could it be music playing from the speakers? Typically they never bat an eye at music. And the curtains are drawn during outside time to avoid them hiting glass and hurting themselves.
