Re: Falling asleep and perching on one foot

Fluffing up and sleeping on one foot is not a worry unless you notice anything else wrong. A bird that is sick usually is not balanced enough to snooze on one foot

Some birds nap, others don't... is he getting a solid dark, quiet 10 plus hours of sleep or quiet at night? But your point he's not grumpy is a good sign that he's just a lazy little napper who enjoys hanging out with his flock and feels totally safe enough to get a snooze while you're on the watch
