i read that even in the wild, birds prefer the highest perch (topmost part of a tree). I've seen this with my birds. They always go to the highest perch in the cage, and when one of them got out, we found him on a candle holder on the top of a kitchen cabinet (they may feel safer there). i think sidra has a good idea to take it in another room. preferable somewhere that does'nt have a possible high place to perch.
