Hi Steve
Uncover at 7 am
You could always cover around 8pm
And dim your lights and lower your tv volume
He will soon get used to the routine and maybe nap in the day too :)
A perch in bedroom is fine :)
I have a mini Java in mine lol
A playstand would be better than a mobile perch
Or even hanging toys from the ceiling
Here's a pic of my lounge and birdroom
Though you don't have to go to this extreme but it gives you a idea of a play area
