So I got my tiel 5 days ago. She's generally really calm and doesn't get spooked by much, is seemingly hand-fed/hand-reared and doesn't have a problem with hands. She doesn't know how to step up but will climb onto my hand if I offer her millet. I talk to her often both when she's in the cage and when she's out of it. But she doesn't particularly seem to want to spend time with me. She takes treats from my hand and will even fall asleep on my hand no problem, but I get the impression this is just her not caring about where her treats come from and where she's falling asleep respectively (she will literally fall asleep wherever, she's currently sleeping on the floor as I type this). How do I make her actively seek out my attention? How do I bond with her?

Thank you for the advice. I figured the whole her napping everywhere was from her not being able to get the right amount of sleep like you said. I put her to bed at 7-8pm but there's usually still people in the room talking so I think that's preventing her from falling asleep. I was being a bit impatient with the bonding I suppose :p , I keep forgetting birds aren't like dogs and don't take a liking to new people immediately.
